Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Gary Paul Nabhan is hot on the trail of climate change
The Boston Globe - 6/30/2011.
By Aaron Kagan – Patagonia, Arizona: A lesser known symbol of climate change is the chili pepper. In a new book “Chasing Chiles: Hot Spots Along the Pepper Trail,’’ Gary Paul Nabhan examines the relationship between food production and global warming through the chili pepper.
Congress should reward farmers who are good stewards
Common Dreams - 6/30/2011.

In recent years, relatively high soy and corn prices have given farmers incentive to expand planting onto marginal lands. The promise of high profits, and a perverse federal commodity subsidy system that rewards intensive mono-cropping, is just too good to resist.
Time to end the chemical war against superweeds
Greenpeace International - 6/30/2011.

Roundup, one of the most common herbicides, is marketed by US agrochemical company Monsanto as “safe” for the environment and for humans – but “deadly for weeds.” Our new report, Herbicide Tolerance and GM Crops paints a very different picture.

One program in Canada is setting out to actively breed better, more resilient bees – and it is enlisting the help of its local beekeepers to do so.
