Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Agriculture fair brings customers to farmers
Bangor Daily News - 3/1/2010.
By Judy Harrison – Bangor: A Glenburn couple Sunday found exactly what they were looking for – a local farm growing organic vegetables where animals are not killed for food. Shannon Prescott and Seamus Walsh are vegans, vegetarians who do not eat animal products including milk, eggs or cheese. “This is our first experience with community supported agriculture, and it is pretty cool,” Walsh said as he and his wife gathered information from the dozen farmers who set up tables at the Reform synagogue.
USDA dumping livestock ID plan
Kennebec Journal - 3/1/2010.
By Mechele Cooper – A controversial federal livestock-tagging program that had earned the scorn of Maine farmers is being scrapped by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The National Animal Identification System is being replaced with a more flexible plan for tracing animal diseases that would apply only to animals sold across state lines, U.S. Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack announced Feb. 5.
Hooking up with farms
Portland Press Herald - 3/1/2010.
By Ann Kim – Portland: Think of it as speed dating for vegetables. That's one description Adrienne Lee of New Beat Farm in Jefferson heard for the community-supported agriculture fairs held around Maine on Sunday. "There are a lot of different options," said Lee, who helped organize the Portland fair. "People get to shop around."

Grist - 3/1/2010.
By Agence France-Presse – Washington: One of the most common weed killers in the world, atrazine, causes chemical castration in frogs and could be contributing to a worldwide decline in amphibian populations, a study published Monday showed. Researchers compared 40 male control frogs with 40 male frogs reared from hatchlings until full sexual maturity in atrazine concentrations similar to those experienced year-round in areas where the chemical is found. Ninety percent of the male frogs exposed to atrazine had low testosterone levels, decreased breeding gland size, feminized laryngeal development, suppressed mating behavior, reduced sperm production, and decreased fertility.
