Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Scientists wage war on pervasive stink bugs
The Washington Post - 5/26/2013.
By Darryl Fears - Early this year, a few news organizations reported that the brown marmorated stink bug was at the top of an Agriculture Department most-unwanted list, the nation’s No. 1 invasive species of interest, the most wanted fugitive among bugs.
Hired bees play major role in Maine blueberry industry
Bangor Daily News - 5/26/2013.
By Tom Walsh - Deblois: The continuing stretch of cold and wet weather has left billions of honeybees trucked into Down East Maine to pollinate the wild blueberry crop hunkered down in their hives for warmth instead of jump-starting the growing season. Some 14,000 bee hives were recently placed across the thousands of acres of wild blueberry barrens owned in Washington County by Jasper Wyman & Son, the largest of Maine’s commercial growers that collectively tend more than 60,000 acres statewide.
The new farm bill is an economic disaster
The Guardian [UK] - 5/26/2013.
By Heidi Moore - The US Congress, its approval rating still near all-time lows, is reinforcing its own record of stupefyingly short-sighted lawmaking with what may be the most harmful piece of economic legislation in America in years: the $1tn 2013 farm bill.
An Urban Farm Thrives Again in Lower Manhattan
The New York Times - 5/26/2013.
By James Barron - First-grade fingers were about to plant “lettuce mix” seeds - mustard, kale and arugula - at the urban farm at the Battery, a carefully tended acre in the shadow of tall office buildings in Lower Manhattan. All of the children had their own space in a bed of dark, rich-looking soil, but the remarkable thing was that the farm was there at all. Hurricane Sandy did not wash it away.
