Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Garelick farms to close Bangor production facility, lay off 35
Bangor Daily News - 10/31/2012.
By Whit Richardson – Bangor: Citing competitive pressures, Garelick Farms is ending production at its Bangor facility and laying off 35 employees. Garelick’s parent company, Texas-based Dean Foods, has decided to phase out production at the Bangor facility over the next two months and close permanently in January, Jamaison Schuler, a spokesman for Dean Foods, told the Bangor Daily News. The Bangor facility predominantly produces fluid milk, Schuler said.

The many benefits of multi-year crop rotations
Farmland LP - 10/30/2012.
By Jason Bradford – Farmland LP’s agricultural practices are based on good science and agronomic principles, and a 9-year research project from America’s heartland continues to support what we do. “Increasing Cropping System Diversity Balances Productivity, Profitability and Environmental Health” is the title of a research paper by scientists from Iowa State University, University of Minnesota and the USDA published earlier this month in the journal PLOS One.
