Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Waldoboro Couple Revitalizes Farm with Creamery and Sawmill
The Lincoln County News - 2/7/2017.
By Alexander Violo - Two new Waldoboro residents are revitalizing a 40-acre farm overlooking the Medomak River off Friendship Road in Waldoboro.
Potato crop rotation research in Presque Isle points to peas
Bangor Daily News - 2/6/2017.
By Anthony Brino - Jake Dyer, an organic grain farmer from Benedicta, has been researching alternative crops with the Maine Potato Board as potato growers are looking to improve their soil and find a third viable crop to add to potatoes and grains in their field rotation cycle.
The disappearance of Maine’s rusty patched bumblebee
Portland Press Herald - 2/5/2017.
By Mary Pols - University of Maine professor Frank Drummond is the last known person to hold a Maine-born rusty patched bumblebee, although his memories of the occasion are foggy, frustratingly so; no scientist wants to be imprecise. He knows it was 2009, because his student workers were engaged in a typical few days of specimen collecting in Stockton Springs, just north of Searsport, that summer.
Is America's most common pesticide responsible for killing our bees?
The Guardian [UK] - 2/5/2017.
By Alison Moodie - The most widely used class of insecticides in the world is facing a slow death. Called neonicotinoids, or neonics, these bug killers have long been used to coat seeds or treat millions of acres of farmland in the US. Research showing that they sicken or kill bees and other pollinators has already prompted the European Union to temporary ban several varieties of the insecticides, and now neonics could lose their grip in North America, too.
