Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farm Bill Rejection Sparks Relief, Concern, in Maine
Maine Public Broadcasting - 6/21/2013.
By Patty B. Wight - On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives rejected a farm bill that sets agriculture and food assistance policy for the next five years. That has implications for Maine, which not only has its share of farmers, but also a quarter-of-a-million people who receive food stamps. As the bill lies in limbo in Congress, Maine food pantry operators and dairy farmers are crossing their fingers that lawmakers can create - and pass - a better bill.
During Record Drought, Frackers Outcompete Farmers for Water Supplies
EcoWatch - 6/21/2013.
By Emily Saari - The impacts of 2013′s severe drought are apparent across the nation in forests, on farms and on once snowy peaks. Meanwhile, the oil and gas industry is demanding unprecedented amounts of water for hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking.
The Search for Monsanto's Rogue GMO Wheat
Bloomberg - 6/20/2013.
By Bill Donahue - Drive across America’s farm country - across the vast plains of Kansas, across the prairies of North Dakota, and then out onto the parched, treeless expanse of the inland Northwest - and the waves of grain can seem endless. About 60 million acres of the U.S. are planted in wheat. That’s an area larger than Utah, and it’s the core of an $18 billion industry that’s as old as the nation - older, in fact.
Monsanto and the World Food Prize
Union of Concerned Scientists - 6/20/2013.
By Doug Gurian-Sherman - As reported in the New York Times, the prestigious World Food Prize was awarded today to a trio of scientists who had important roles in the early development of crop genetic engineering. One, Robert Fraley, is at Monsanto, and another Mary-Dell Chilton, is with another seed giant, Syngenta. The third is European scientist Marc Van Montagu.
