Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Root of all evil: Vegetables in NYC gardens are 'toxic'
New York Post - 11/16/2014.
By Gary Buiso - Herbs and vegetables grown in New York City community gardens are loaded with lead and other toxic metals, a startling state study shows. Tainted vegetables - some sold in city markets - were found in five of seven plots tested. Most of the root vegetables sampled far exceeded safe thresholds for lead, with the most toxic being a carrot at the Hart to Hart community garden in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
Depleting the water
CBS - 11/16/2014.
By Lesley Stahl - It's been said that the wars of the 21st century may well be fought over water. The Earth's population has more than doubled over the last 50 years and the demand for fresh water - to drink and to grow food - has surged along with it. But sources of water like rainfall, rivers, streams, reservoirs, certainly haven't doubled. So where is all that extra water coming from? More and more, it's being pumped out of the ground.
Four Die, One Injured in Chemical Leak at Texas Plant
Common Dreams - 11/16/2014.
By Nadia Prupis - Four workers were killed and one injured in a chemical leak at a DuPont plant near Houston, Texas on Saturday. A valve began leaking methyl mercaptan, a chemical used to make insecticides and fungicides, around 4am at a plant stationed in La Porte, about 20 miles east of Houston.
Field of weeds: Could agriculture crisis crop up from herbicide resistance?
PBS - 11/15/2014.
Millions of acres of farmland in the U.S. have been affected by herbicide-resistant weeds, rendering some fields unable to be farmed. And the problem is spreading, which could mean more lost crops and lost profits. The EPA approved a new herbicide to be used with USDA-approved genetically modified seeds, but opponents have sued, warning it could harm the environment and human health.
