Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
GMO Labeling: Simple Transparency, or Undue Burden for Maine Farmers?
Maine Public Broadcasting - 4/23/2013.
By Jay Field - Genetically-engineered food in Maine would need to be labeled as such, under a bill being considered by Maine lawmakers. If it were to pass, the measure could only take effect after similar legislation has passed in a handful of other states. Opponents, including major food and agriculture industry groups, told lawmakers at a public hearing that the bill isn't supported by science and would raise costs for businesses and consumers. Supporters argued that consumers have a right to know whether the food they're consuming comes from genetically-modified organisms - or GMOs.
Penobscot Bay as region struggles with identity, narrowing economic base
The Working Waterfront - 4/23/2013.
By Tom Groening - Penobscot Bay is a distinctive estuary, easily recognized even in a photo taken from space. According to a recent study, it is "the largest, most ecologically diverse, island-filled bay in the Gulf of Maine." Yet the people who live in the two-dozen towns that rim the bay do not see themselves as part of a single region, nor is there any unifying government or leadership group. And that lack of cohesion and identity will hinder efforts to combat some sobering demographic trends.
Augusta lawmakers consider GMO labeling bill

Source of Dissolved Organic Matter and Water Quality
Environmental News Network - 4/23/2013.
By Andy Soos - A new study led by researchers at William & Mary's Virginia Institute of Marine Science reveals that land use in the watersheds from which dissolved organic matter originates has important implications for Chesapeake Bay water quality, with the organic carbon in runoff from urbanized or heavily farmed landscapes more likely to persist as it is carried downstream.
