Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Does it pay to eat organic? ‘Natural’ tomatoes are packed with more disease-fighting antioxidants, claim scientists
Daily Mail [UK] - 7/5/2012.
By Claire Bates – It's an argument that continues to exercise consumers and growers across the UK - organic produce may be good for the environment, but is it any better for your health? A new study has found that when it comes to tomatoes at least, it really may pay off to fork out for the more expensive organic produce.
The hoe is better
The Contrary Farmer - 7/5/2012.
By Gene Logsdon – I love my garden tiller and when I was younger I loved it even more. But as I grow older I have to admit that when it comes to controlling weeds, the good old hoe is better than any cultivator. Tillers are good for loosening up the dirt in spring, or to smooth the soil after turning it over with a spade. And of course if you have really large plots to cultivate, the tiller is the better choice. For everything else I vote for the hoe.
Climate change is already shrinking crop yields
Mother Jones - 7/4/2012.
– By Tom Philpott – For years now, people have wondered how climate change will affect farming. How will humanity feed itself during a time of rising temperatures and recurring drought? ere in the US, we're starting to get a taste of things to come – and it's bitter.
Another good reason to choose organic sweet corn
Portland Press Herald - 7/4/2012.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Corn is a traditional Fourth of July treat, whether roasted on the grill, steamed in a large pot or layered into a lobster bake. Yet this all-American food is increasingly raising red flags among independent scientists and farmers. This summer marks the first time that Monsanto's Bt sweet corn has been approved for planting in Maine.
