Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Fruits and Vegetables Potentially Soaked With Toxic Flame Retardant Chemical
Environmental Working Group - 6/24/2009.
Large plastic pallets used to ship, cool and store produce contain decabromodiphenyl ether (Deca), a flame retardant chemical and known neurotoxin that may leach onto the fruits and vegetables inside.
Maine’s fishing fleet would benefit from division into sectors
Portland Press Herald - 6/24/2009.
By Glen Libby – Fishing has long been an essential part of Maine's history and heritage. Some two centuries ago, church bells would ring in Port Clyde each time the fish were running, beckoning families to unload and clean the day's fresh catch. The future of that tradition once seemed set in stone. But then came nearly two decades of fisheries mismanagement and overfishing that decimated cod, flounder and other groundfish stocks. Now, the fishermen who are left plying the waters can barely eke out a living. This week, everything could change.
Rain plumps strawberries, but hinders other crops
Bangor Daily News - 6/24/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – The overwhelming number of rainy days in June has left some Maine farmers unable to put tractors in their fields, has rotted some seed right in the ground, and has cut the quality of the state's hay crop in half. But in most areas it's been wonderful for the strawberries and the potatoes, and peas are looking pretty good, too.
OCA’s Position on the new House food safety bill, HR 2479
Organic Consumers - 6/23/2009.
By Alexis Baden-Mayer – The Organic Consumers Association is fairly satisfied now that Congress has heard our message and that HR 2749 is intended to protect organic production methods from conflict with new food safety regulations.
