Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Sustainable farming can feed the world?
The New York Times - 3/8/2011.
By Mark Bittman – The oldest and most common dig against organic agriculture is that it cannot feed the world’s citizens; this, however, is a supposition, not a fact. And industrial agriculture isn’t working perfectly, either: the global food price index is at a record high, and our agricultural system is wreaking havoc with the health not only of humans but of the earth. There are around a billion undernourished people; we can also thank the current system for the billion who are overweight or obese.

The Guardian [UK] - 3/8/2011.
A move by farmers in developing countries to ecological agriculture, away from chemical fertilisers and pesticides, could double food production within a decade, a UN report says.

Maine agricultural leaders said Tuesday the survey showed that the state’s farming industry is healthy and sustainable, both in retaining and growing farms.
