Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Wanted: milk money
Sun Journal - 10/4/2009.
By Kathryn Skelton – LEEDS — Every morning when John Nutting opens the barn door, 50 cows wander into their individual stalls, each one with its name hanging above on a dusty white sign. Charm. Amy. Mazda. Every morning, after she's been fed, Madalynn digs her nose into the passing grain cart to steal an extra bite. Every morning a cow is pregnant, and needs extra attention. "Exactly the same things happening, exactly the same time, every time," said Nutting, 60. Outside the barn, farmers have their own routine. They watch milk prices go up. Then down. Up. Down.
For toxic-chemical reformist, vindication
Portland Press Herald - 10/3/2009.
By John Richardson – Deborah Rice couldn't help feeling a bit vindicated this week when the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency called for an overhaul of the nation's toxic-chemical control law.

New kind of beehive makes for ‘happy bees’
Bangor Daily News - 10/3/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Tenants Harbor: When Jan Wirth gets close to the rectangular wooden beehive at Old Woods Farm, the lazy, muted buzzing from the tens of thousands of honeybees inside makes her smile. “There’s a nice hum,” she said earlier this week. “When they’re happy, the hum is different than when they’re angry.” And happy bees are exactly what Wirth wants as permanent residents of Old Woods Farm, the conservation neighborhood she’s developing close to the Tenants Harbor village center on a parcel of land that boasts old apple trees, low bush blueberries, meadow grasses, sunflowers and red clover.
Studies show evidence that Syngenta’s atrazine harms fish and amphibians
TampaBay.com - 10/1/2009.
By Richard Danielson – Tampa, Florida: With the EPA taking a hard look at the popular weed killer atrazine, two University of South Florida biologists say there's evidence it harms fish and frogs. In Florida, atrazine is widely used on lawns, golf courses and sugarcane fields. But the USF researchers say study after scientific study shows that atrazine alters or interferes with the development, behavior and the immune, hormone and reproductive systems of aquatic animals.
