Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Developer eyes Milo site for greenhouses
Bangor Daily News - 8/25/2009.
By Diana Bowley – If a developer has his way, fresh organic vegetables, flowers and shrubs sold wholesale in central and northern New England would be grown in Milo. Brian Grosse of the Boston area, who purchased the vacant Ox Yoke buildings in 2006, wants to use a small portion of the main mill building for an office and build greenhouses behind the building using the six 30-by-200-foot foundations left behind by the earlier American Thread Co. operation.
DNA clue to honey bee deaths
BBC News - 8/24/2009.
By Judith Burns – Scientists say that mass bee deaths may be caused by viruses that disrupt gene expression. The team analysed which genes were turned on and which were turned off in healthy bees and those from hives with colony collapse disorder (CCD). Since 2006, CCD has caused the catastrophic loss of US bee hives and is implicated in bee deaths elsewhere.
Top Chef Cooks Up Ways To Cut Costs, Not Quality
National Public Radio - 8/24/2009.
Chef Sam Hayward of Fore Street Restaurant in Portland, Maine, was a James Beard award winner for outstanding chef in 2004. To draw in diners in a tough economy, Hayward makes fish cakes and beans that are about half the cost of fancier items on his menu.
More fallout from this year’s overwatering: plant diseases
Portland Press Herald - 8/23/2009.
By Tom Atwell – The leaves are falling, and it isn't fall. All across Maine, a fungus called tar spot of maple is producing black spots on maple leaves, causing them to curl up and drop off. Bruce Watt, a plant disease specialist at the University of Maine Extension in Orono, says he has seen the disease in the Bangor-Brewer area, and it is moving to the coast. And – what a surprise – you can blame the wet weather. "It was sort of building up last year," Watt said, "and we saw more of it this spring. It was so very wet, and wetness is a requirement for the spore of this fungus to germinate."
