Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
UK medical journals will no longer consider research funded by tobacco industry
The Independent - 10/16/2013.
By Charlie Cooper - The editors of Britain’s leading medical journal and its sister publications have announced they will no longer consider research that is funded by the tobacco industry.
Kauai County Crosses the Rubicon, Council Passes Pesticide and GMO Bill
Honolulu Civil Beat - 10/16/2013.
By Sophie Cocke - After a marathon hearing, the Kauai County Council passed a hotly debated bill on Wednesday that could lead to prison time or fines for employees of agricultural companies if they don’t divulge specifics about pesticide use, abide by strict setback rules for spraying chemicals or disclose when they grow genetically engineered crops.
Drift catchers use citizen science to fight pesticide pollution
Grist - 10/16/2013.
By Lori Rotenberk - When Laura Krouse heard the roar of a crop duster as it flew low, ducking under utility wires to lay down a blanket of herbicides, she sprang into action. Working deftly, she set up a small air vacuum resembling a clothes hanging rod close to her field of vegetables, corn, and hay, not far from where the plane was spraying the neighbor’s 10,000-acre farm. There, it would inhale samples of the air to later be tested to see if the chemicals were drifting onto her land.

Maine Public Broadcasting - 10/16/2013.
By Jennifer Mitchell - With the arrival of autumn, farmers across the state are drying their feed corn, putting piles of pumpkins by the road and fattening up turkeys for the Thanksgiving market. So too is a crew of inmates at the Bolduc Correctional Facility in Warren. At Bolduc, prisoners serving the last few years of their sentences can learn what it takes to grow their own food, and run a farm. As Jennifer Mitchell reports, the prison farm was once one of the biggest agricultural producers in the state. Today, it's a more modest operation focused on vocational education and therapy.
