Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Agriculture Linked to DNA Changes in Ancient Europe
The New York Times - 11/23/2015.
By Carl Zimmer - The agricultural revolution was one of the most profound events in human history, leading to the rise of modern civilization. Now, in the first study of its kind, an international team of scientists has found that after agriculture arrived in Europe 8,500 years ago, people’s DNA underwent widespread changes, altering their height, digestion, immune system and skin color.
UN Must Include Soil Health in Climate Mitigation Strategies
Common Dreams - 11/23/2015.
By Abigail Seiler, Center for Food Safety - Center for Food Safety (CFS) is calling on world leaders to recognize agro-ecological agriculture as a core climate solution during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Paris this December. CFS, as part of its newly launched Soil Solutions program, will be attending the talks as an accredited representative, participating in events aimed at raising the profile of carbon sequestration through regenerative agriculture, a strategy that holds great potential to address the climate crisis.
How the introduction of farming changed the human genome
Science Daily - 11/23/2015.
Harvard Medical School - Genomic analysis of ancient human remains identifies specific genes that changed during and after the transition in Europe from hunting and gathering to farming about 8,500 years ago. Many of the genes are associated with height, immunity, lactose digestion, light skin pigmentation, blue eye color and celiac disease risk.
Soper Farms Triples Net Income Switching From GMO Crops to Organic
Nation of Change - 11/22/2015.
By Ken Roseboro - Making the transition from conventional to organic farming can be a big leap, but Harn Soper will tell you – based on experience – that it is worth it in terms of better crops, soil and financial returns. Soper, a member of a four-generation Iowa farming family, is so convinced of organic farming's value that he has launched a fund, Sustainable Farm Partners, to increase organic farming in Iowa.
