Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Sustainability: aspiring to use only fruits of labor on the farm
Kennebec Journal - 11/6/2009.
By Denis Thoet – I love words. I love our language. I especially love the word "sustainable." Environmentalists use the word often. Even Monsanto, their nemesis, uses the word to describe itself in National Public Television ads. Very funny. How do you define it? Our Oxford American Dictionary is not that helpful: "Sustain: Support, bear the weight of for a long time; maintain ... continuously." Sort of like a perpetual motion machine, which remains in the realm of the unattainable.
Genetically modified corn growers not following rules designed to maintain pest resistance
Ethicurean - 11/5/2009.
As many as 25% of the American farmers growing genetically engineered corn are no longer complying with federal rules intended to maintain the resistance of the crops to damage from insects, according to a Center for Science in the Public Interest report released Thursday based on EPA records.
For swine flu, forget about origins and start thinking about practices
Grist - 11/5/2009.
By Tom Philpott – Asking when and where this novel H1N1 strain mutated into present form is a bit like trying to identify the first mutant wolf pup that grew into a proper dog. In this context, origin is impossible to identify—and probably not that interesting. The real question is, which of our practices are creating ideal conditions for the mutation of new swine-flu strains not recognized by human immune systems?
As dairy farmers continue to fail, risk grows for our quality of life
Kennebec Journal - 11/4/2009.
By George Smith – In 1991, I wrote my first column lamenting the loss of Maine's dairy farms. Six hundred farmers were still in the dairy business at that time. In 2002, I wrote a sorrowful plea to save the 412 dairy farmers still clinging tenuously to their way of life. Today, I bid farewell to the open fields, black and white cows and hearty farmers we've lost in the last six years, as well as those who will keep farming until all of their resources are gone.
