Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
House ducks responsibiity to pass a pre-election Farm Bill
Portland Press Herald - 7/28/2012.
Op-ed by Dallas Morning News – What, precisely, John Boehner is thinking, we don't know. But we do have a message from the heartland for the Republican speaker of the House: His actions, which are delaying the House's consideration of the farm bill, are an example of why Americans want to throw both parties out of power.
Plenty of berries await this year’s wild blueberry harvest
Bangor Daily News - 7/28/2012.
By Tom Walsh – Columbia: Washington County’s thousands of acres of wild blueberries are bursting with fruit for this year’s harvest, which begins Monday at sunrise. “It looks like it’ll be a good crop,” said Tom Worcester, who tends 150 acres of blueberry barrens along Pea Ridge Road in Columbia.
Southern Maine farmers find challenges in summer heat
Bangor Daily News - 7/27/2012.
By Will Graff, The Forecaster – Cape Elizabeth: As one of the hottest summers on record wreaks havoc on farms across the country, farmers here are faring a little better, with mixed success. And, despite the rest of the United States being in the midst of the worst drought since the Dust Bowl in the 1930s, Maine has managed to avoid any severe water shortages. Even so, some farms’ water supplies are scraping the barrel.
Learning from the drought of ‘12
Energy Bulletin - 7/26/2012.
By Chad Hellwinckel – The news outlets love a good disaster, and we've all been informed daily of the mega-drought in the Midwest. Three quarters of the US corn crop is under severe drought. Corn prices are up over 50% in the last month, soybeans are up almost 30%, and the USDA says they are still assessing the damage. What I haven't heard in the news is any discussion over whether we have other options to avoid these increasingly regular crop disasters.
