Independent Science News - 5/20/2013.

Producer Profiles in Organic Dairy
eOrganic - 5/20/2013.
Three farm case studies track financials as farms transitioned to certified organic production.

And Sygenta AG is funding grants for research into the accelerating demise of honeybees in the United States. The agrichemical companies are taking these initiatives at a time when their best-selling pesticides are under fire from environmental and food activists who say the chemicals are killing off millions of bees. The companies say their pesticides are not the problem, but critics say science shows the opposite.
