Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Washington Grapples with a Thorny Question: What Is a GMO Anyway?
MIT Technology Review - 5/26/2016.
By Mike Orcutt - Policymakers trying to figure out how to oversee a new generation of genetically engineered crops face a dilemma: gene-editing techniques are making it more difficult to tell what a GMO even is.
UCSF Presentation Reveals Glyphosate Contamination in People across America
The Detox Project - 5/25/2016.
Glyphosate, the most used herbicide in the World, has been found in the urine of 93% of [a very small sampling of] the American public during a unique testing project that started in 2015.
Organic Hotspots
Organic Trade Association - 5/25/2016.
Conclusive research now links economic health at the county level to organic agriculture, and shows that organic food and crop production – and the business activities accompanying organic agriculture – creates real and long-lasting regional economic opportunities.
Investigating Retail Price Premiums for Organic Foods
USDA - 5/24/2016.
By Andrea Carlson - Since USDA began regulating organic labels on food in 2002, the organic food sector has been one of the fastest growing sectors in the food industry. According to the National Business Journal, total sales for organic food were just under $11.5 billion in 2004, climbing to an estimated $37 billion in 2015. Organic food sales even grew during the Great Recession, as organic products became available in more retail outlets, and growth has continued since. The Organic Trade Association reports that from 2011 to 2012, organic food sales grew 10.2 percent versus 3.7 percent for all food sales, and that organic sales were up 11.3 percent from 2013 to 2014.
