Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
No till farming not so great after all
The Contrary Farmer - 12/28/2011.
By Gene Logsdon – It was just a couple of handfuls of soil and a few drops of water, but for the world of modern farming, it might as well have been a bomb dropping on the staid headquarters of the Natural Resources Conservation Service in Washington.
Big farm, small farm
Down East - 12/28/2011.
By Michaela Cavallaro – Farming in Maine is an exercise in contrast. On one end of the spectrum are the lifestyle operations, with one farmer, a few acres, and a small but diverse array of crops sold to individuals.

On the other end are Maine’s large producers.

The New York Times - 12/27/2011.
By Mark Bittman – Earlier this month, the Maine-based grocery chain Hannaford issued a ground beef recall after at least 14 people were infected with an antibiotic-resistant strain of salmonella.

Oil more toxic than previously thought
Los Angeles Times - 12/27/2011.

The report is to be published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
