Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
New research: synthetic nitrogen destroys soil carbon, undermines soil health
Grist - 2/23/2010.
By Tom Philpott – The case for synthetic N as a climate stabilizer goes like this. Dousing farm fields with synthetic nitrogen makes plants grow bigger and faster. As plants grow, they pull carbon dioxide from the air. Some of the plant is harvested as crop, but the rest – the residue – stays in the field and ultimately becomes soil. In this way, some of the carbon gobbled up by those N-enhanced plants stays in the ground and out of the atmosphere. Well, that logic has come under fierce challenge from a team of University of Illinois researchers.
Does it really matter whether your food was produced locally?
Alternet - 2/23/2010.
By Stan Cox – The local wits in Salina, Kansas, like to say the easiest way to for us "eat locally" around here is to heat up a Tony's® frozen pizza. It's not just that Tony's has a large plant on the west side of town. Salina is also surrounded by wheat fields and is home to a large flour mill. Our local pizza, at least theoretically, could be assembled on a local crust. But our hometown pizza can be considered local only if we ignore the many miles ingredients like tomato sauce, cheese, pork and beef travel to reach the plant.
Bangor balks at backyard chickens
Bangor Daily News - 2/23/2010.
By Eric Russell – Bangor: In a surprise move, the Bangor City Council voted Monday to table indefinitely an ordinance change that would have allowed residents in any residential zone to keep domestic chickens.
Agriculture funding available for islands
Bangor Daily News - 2/23/2010.
Rockland: The Island Institute has announced a second round of funding available through the Four-Season Island Agriculture Fund, made possible by the 1772 Foundation. This small-grant program is designed to support sustainable-agriculture projects in Maine’s unbridged year-round island communities.
