Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Late harvest sows problems for farmers
The Wall Street Journal - 10/31/2009.
By Joe Barrett – Piper City, Ill.: Most years, Larry Thorndyke has his corn fully harvested by Halloween. This year, almost all of his 1,400 acres of corn are still in the field, exposing his farm to crop disease, bad weather and a potential financial nightmare.
Conference in Caribou targets pests
Bangor Daily News - 10/30/2009.
By Jen Lynds – Caribou: An outbreak of spruce budworm during the 1970-80s damaged forests and irked landowners and scientists who fought to counter the damage done by the pests. Despite the devastation it caused, the outbreak taught forest managers, scientists and others a great deal about what to do to prevent a possible recurrence and combat it if one does occur.
Dresden: Helping with the harvest
Kennebec Journal - 10/30/2009.
By Mechele Cooper – Dresden: Elizabeth Lakeman ran her hands back and forth through the rich, brown earth looking for yellow fingerling potatoes. The retired L.L. Bean employee showed up Thursday morning at Goranson Farm on River Road to offer her help. The certified organic farm, owned by Jan Goranson and her husband, Rob Johanson, lost most of their potato and tomato crops to late blight – an airborne, spore-based disease that thrives in cool, moist weather. Now that winter is approaching, they need to salvage 6 acres of seed potatoes. They're short staffed and in need of potato pickers.
Ecologies of value
Harvard Gazette Online - 10/29/2009.
By Corydon Ireland – In the ancient Mediterranean world, tapered ceramic jars called amphorae were used to store and transport fish, olive oil, grapes, grain, and other goods. When these containers were used for wine, Greek merchants stamped them with regional seals. These seals were the earliest sign of what is now known as terroir, the notion that a wine or other food embodies a sense of place.
