Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Poultry markets in China 'are vast bird flu reservoir'
BBC News - 10/30/2013.
By James Gallagher - Closing live poultry markets in China dramatically curtailed the spread of a novel strain of bird flu this year, according to an analysis.
Maine moms, activists rally for changes in chemical safety bill
Portland Press Herald - 10/30/2013.
By Kevin Miller - Washington: A group of Maine mothers and activists joined others from around the country Tuesday to lobby Congress to change a chemical safety bill that they say would undermine consumer protection laws enacted in Maine and other states.
Organic standards for farm-raised fish come slowly
Politico - 10/30/2013.
By Jenny Hopkinson - Farm-raised fish is one of the few types of food not currently available at the grocery store with a U.S. Department of Agriculture organic label on it, but the agency shouldn’t be in too much of a rush to rectify that, a handful of organic and consumer advocacy groups warn.
How You Pay Farmers to Watch Their Crop Shrivel Up and Die
Mother Jones - 10/30/2013.
By Laird Townsend - With the exception of scattered irrigation, most farmers in West Texas practice "dryland" farming, meaning they're entirely dependent on rain. Rainfall on Eric Herm's acreage had previously averaged 17 inches a year, but in 2011 and 2012 the annual averages were 3 and 8 inches, he said. Even the driest years of the Dust Bowl, which lasted off and on from 1930 to 1940, brought about 9 to 14 inches of rain to Herm's region, according to Natalie Umphlett of the Nebraska-based High Plains Regional Climate Center.
