Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Monsanto corn under attack by superbug
Wall Street Journal - 8/29/2011.
By Scott Kilman – Widely grown corn plants that Monsanto Co. genetically modified to thwart a voracious bug are falling prey to that very pest in a few Iowa fields, the first time a major Midwest scourge has developed resistance to a genetically modified crop.
Growing vegetables popular, not pervasive
Maine Sunday Telegram - 8/28/2011.
By Tom Atwell – It isn't just hype. Mainers, and Americans in general, are growing more of their own vegetables. Probably. The topic came up when I was talking about something else with Lois Berg Stack, an ornamental horticulture specialist with the University of Maine Extension in Orono and one of the state's top garden gurus. She was wondering if all the publicity in 2009 – from the White House down to Main Street – meant that people were still growing vegetables in 2011, or if they had tried it and quit.
Apple growers preparing for hurricane
Bangor Daily News - 8/27/2011.
By Alex Barber – Apple orchards around the state are doing what they can to prepare for Hurricane Irene, but there may not be much they can do. “I don’t know what preparations we can do,” said Mildred Levesque, who operates Mil-Del Farm in Plymouth with her husband, Delmar. “If a big wind comes up, I don’t know how you would prepare for something like that except pray.” It’s still too early in the season for apple varieties such as McIntosh to be picked. Some growers are working to get other ripe apples off the trees.
