Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
LePage vetos bill to beef up Maine chemical law
Portland Press Herald - 7/8/2013.
By Steve Mistler - Augusta: Gov. Paul LePage vetoed a bill Monday that would have bolstered a state program to phase out toxic chemicals in children's products. Advocates said they would return to the State House Tuesday to urge lawmakers to override the governor's decision. The focus will likely shift to Republican lawmakers who have helped sustain most of the governor's vetoes this session, even after initially voting to pass legislation.
Freedom’s Just Another Word for Organic
Organic Farming Research Foundation - 7/8/2013.
By Karen Adler - Organic agriculture provides real independence for farmers, for consumers, for communities, and for the world. As we know, organic farmers and ranchers use production methods that are independent of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, and free of antibiotics and growth hormones.

The Guardian [UK] - 7/8/2013.
By John Vidal - Countries may not be able to increase food production because many staple crops are close to their physiological growing limits.

By Lauren McCauley - Strains of unauthorized, genetically modified (GM) rice have been found in United States' exports in over 30 countries, threatening 'widespread contamination' to the world's rice supply.
