Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Pesticides in food linked to ADHD in kids
MSNBC - 9/11/2011.
By Leah Zerbe – Levels of pesticides commonly encountered across the country in food as well as around the home are significantly increasing children's risk of developing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and could be causing an increase in the number of children living with the condition, according to new research published in the journal Pediatrics.
Farmers celebrating Maine Apple Sunday on Sept. 11
Bangor Daily News - 9/10/2011.
Fairfield: Terri Glidden, farm manager at The Apple Farm in Fairfield, said this year’s apple crop is doing very well. “We might be a week later in picking some varieties, but overall it should be a great season,” she said Friday. Matt Treworgy at Treworgy Family Orchard in Levant said this year could be his farm’s biggest crop ever. “It is going to be really, really good,” he said Friday. At the Mildel Farm in Plymouth, Mildred Levesque echoed that assessment.
Pesticide residues in compost feedstocks are damaging garden plants
Bangor Daily News - 9/10/2011.
By Reeser Manley – Organic gardeners are always on the lookout for compost feedstock: for sources of summer grass clippings, autumn leaves, barnyard manure and stable litter. I’ve been known to rake a neighbor’s lawn for the leaves. You can never have too much. In the last two weeks of August, Marjorie and I stockpiled two pickup loads of composted goat manure from a local organic farm, covering the pile with tarps to prevent leaching of the valuable nutrients, and two loads of hardwood chips for resurfacing the vegetable garden pathways come spring. Never enough.
Superweeds go mainstream
Grist - 9/9/2011.
By Tom Laskawy – I don't expect that Monsanto takes much notice when articles about superweeds – plants that have developed resistance to its flagship RoundUp herbicide and its active ingredient glyphosate – appear in Grist, Scientific American, Mother Jones or even The New York Times. But when the mainstream business press writes about the subject, as Bloomberg BusinessWeek did under the headline "Attack of the Superweeds," I have to believe that Monsanto's top brass starts to worry.
