Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Late blight yields bitter harvest
The Boston Globe - 7/31/2009.
By Bina Venkataraman – Lincoln, Mass: Slumped in his tractor, Ari Kurtz looked out at his fields, where rotting fruit and gnarled plants fringed with dead leaves were all that remained of what should have been a bountiful tomato harvest. In just the past week, Kurtz, the farm manager at Lindentree Farm, lost the season’s crop, a half-acre field that at this time of year typically yields up to 2,400 pounds per week, to a contagious fungus that has spread to farms and home gardens across the Northeast.
Monsanto & Dow’s “SmartStax” corn—forcing another hazardous ‘Frankenfood’ down our throats
Organic Consumers - 7/31/2009.
By Stephen Leahy, Asia Times Online – The most complex genetically engineered corn (maize) yet has been approved for use next year in Canada and the United States without its potential health and environmental risks being investigated, anti-biotech activists claim.
Why not start “Agri-Corps”, for a new generation of farmers
Common Dreams - 7/31/2009.
By Lisa M. Hamilton – When the Agriculture Department released its 2007 census recently, the news appeared surprisingly good: For the first time since World War II, the United States did not lose farms, it gained them – 75,810, to be exact, for a total of 2.2 million. But on closer inspection, the numbers aren’t so hopeful. The discrepancy stems from this tricky question: What is a farm? The census has changed its definition nine times since 1850, most recently to “any place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold, or normally would have been sold, during the census year.”
FSA report on organic food – our response
Soil Association UK - 7/31/2009.
As you may be aware, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has just published a report on organic food, which claims that there are no significant benefits to be gained from eating organic. This is a serious piece of research, and the Soil Association will examine its conclusion seriously – however at first glance the research appears to be a fairly limited piece of analysis.
