Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Corn corn everywhere – and not a drop to eat
Grist - 2/16/2012.
By Tom Laskawy – If you want to understand the state of American commodity agriculture at the moment, you need only read this recent Bloomberg article. It begins: U.S. farmers will plant the most acres in a generation this year, led by the biggest corn crop since World War II, taking advantage of the highest agricultural prices in at least four decades.
Why farms want cold winters
Grist - 2/16/2012.
By Matthew Kronsberg – Despite appearances, winter is a surprisingly important time on a farm. There’s a lot going on, biologically, below the surface, much that can influence what we see on market tables for the rest of the year. And much that can go wrong if the winter is warm, as this one has been in the Northeast.
Augusta residents could opt out of spraying
Kennebec Journal - 2/16/2012.
By Keith Edwards – Residents would have the option of not having the sidewalks next to their homes sprayed with chemicals if they agree to get rid of the weeds themselves. That choice is offered under a new herbicide ordinance and policy meant to control weeds on city sidewalks and other property.
Mainers are leading a push to restore family farming
The Wire New Hampshire - 2/15/2012.
By Matt Kanner – It was 20 degrees below zero when farmer Jim Gerritsen got up on the early morning of Feb. 13. Gerritson operates Wood Prairie Farm in rural Bridgewater, Maine, near the Canadian border in Aroostook County, the most sparsely populated county east of the Mississippi River. With more land than Connecticut and Rhode Island combined, it’s home to only about 71,000 people.
