In-Transition Land

In-Transition Land refers to land that is undergoing the required three-year transition period from conventional to organic as required by all organic standards. While no toxic chemicals are allowed during this time, the transition period is required to eliminate remaining residues left in the soil from past conventional practices. Land undergoing the first, second and third year of this transition period is referred to as Year 1 (Y1), Year 2 (Y2) and Year 3 (Y3) In-Transition Land respectively.
