Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
High-security Aroostook farm advances tater technology
Bangor Daily News - 6/10/2011.
By Matt Wickenheiser – Masardis: While potato farms aren’t exactly rare in Aroostook County, this one is set apart from others by barbed-wire-topped chain-link fences and surveillance cameras that secure access to the fields. Inside the buildings are high-tech laboratories and one of only a few hydroponic systems used to grow seed potatoes in North America.
Inquiring minds want to know if water safe to drink, use in garden
Kennebec Journal - 6/10/2011.
By Denis Thoet – A few weeks ago, enterprising local newspaper reporter Mechele Cooper called to ask if we tested our well water for uranium and arsenic, which she called "known carcinogens." Knowing that there are no stupid questions – there are only stupid answers – I replied that we tested our well water for bacteria every year or so, but not for uranium or arsenic. I supposed that it would make sense since high levels could leach into some vegetables, but we just hadn't thought of it (that was the stupid part of the answer).
Weeds increasingly immune to herbicides
Science News - 6/9/2011.

Getting hooked on fresh fish
Portland Press Herald - 6/9/2011.
By Leslie Bridgers – Naples: The seafood served to Lake Region students Wednesday was far different from the fish sticks of school lunches past. Along with the regular menu of tacos and macaroni and cheese, the high school offered samples of three hake dishes, made with fish caught earlier this week off the midcoast.
