Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Banned from the barn
The New York Times - 7/5/2011.
By Mark Bittman – Iowa’s ag-gag law failed to pass before summer recess last week: a good thing. The ridiculous proposition, which died along with similar ones in Minnesota, Florida and New York, would have made it illegal to videotape or photograph in the agricultural facilities that house almost all of our chickens and pigs.
Congress moves to cut screening for food E. coli
Portland Press Herald - 7/4/2011.
By Monica Eng – Congress is moving to eliminate the only national program that regularly screens U.S. fruits and vegetables for the type of E. coli that recently caused a deadly outbreak in Germany. The House last month approved a bill that would end funding for the 10-year-old Microbiological Data Program, which annually tests about 15,000 samples of vulnerable produce.
Efforts to bring back the great American chestnut raise hopes
Maine Sunday Telegram - 7/3/2011.
By Tom Atwell – The American chestnut once dominated the forests of the eastern United States. The trees would live for more than 100 years and grow about 200 feet high. It's also the tree wiped out by a blight that arrived in America from China in 1903.
Potato growers who suffered crop losses get federal assistance
Bangor Daily News - 7/2/2011.
By Jen Lynds – Presque Isle: Potato growers who saw their crops damaged or destroyed when three tornadoes whipped through Aroostook County early last month will receive support from the federal government. The Farm Services Agency at USDA has approved a $400,000 grant through its Emergency Conservation Program to help farmers who suffered crop damage during recent storms.
