Agriculture news, articles and information:
|9/29/2016 - One of the biggest – but most easily debunked – lies we've been told about GM agriculture is that the technology is necessary to feed a steadily increasing world population.
Monsanto and other GM agriculture companies would like for us to believe that their methods increase crop yields...|
|8/22/2016 - My name is Robert, and I am a Cornell University undergraduate student. However, I'm not sure if I want to be one any more. Allow me to explain.
(Article by Robert Schooler, republished from Gmwatch.org)
Cornell, as an institution, appears to be complicit in a shocking amount of ecologically destructive,...|
|8/6/2016 - Back in May 2016, Earthjustice threatened to sue Hawaii's Department of Agriculture for allowing hazardous pesticides to flow into waterways on the island of Kaua'i. After having the water samples tested and confirming that the water is a toxic cocktail of various chemicals, the lawsuit has been filed.
|6/2/2016 - A new landmark study has refuted many of the claims of the genetically modified organism (GMO) industry, demonstrating that many of the promises of GMO agriculture remain unfulfilled decades later.
The study by the National Academy of Sciences concluded that GMO farming practices have created pesticide-resistant...|
|5/23/2016 - A regulatory loophole ushered in an era of toxic pesticides that has destroyed nearly half of all bees and their colonies over the past few years. Thanks to a deeply flawed system in the U.S., with no accountability in sight, the most wealthy corporations in the world are systematically destroying the...|
|5/14/2016 - When it comes to non-GMO foods, governments, food giants and Big Agri seem to have excuse after excuse lined up to protect the development of GMO at the expense of the growth of the non-GMO and organic sectors. There has long been a myth around the fact that GMO labels increase the price of food, but...|
|5/14/2016 - Nestle SA, the world's largest food corporation, has a business model that thrives on the worldwide propagation of processed food. And even though the multinational giant has acquired several smaller companies in recent years that some say cater to the organic community, Nestle's Chairman of the Board...|
|4/10/2016 - Over the last 20 years, the agricultural industry has slowly and inconspicuously introduced genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to the world, dominating the market in just a few short years, while the majority of the public stays mostly uniformed.
Following Paul Berg's 1971 gene-splicing experiment,...|
|3/16/2016 - It's as if populations of people are being put into fishbowls, confined to an idea of glass walls that forces the people to be like helpless goldfish, looking up for their food, accepting whatever is tossed in. Corporate hands operating in a global economy feed the fish, the people, spraying them with...|
|10/15/2015 - European nations are leading the world in rejecting genetically modified organisms in food and crops, with two more countries recently joining the list: Italy and Austria.

|8/28/2015 - When you shop for produce and see that higher price placed on the organic varieties, chances are you think there probably isn't that much difference between the two. Surely conventional agriculture doesn't waste chemicals. They only use them when they need to – when insects or fungus attacks the...|
|7/19/2015 - There has been a debate raging about GMOs for a long time now. On one side of the debate is the idea that genetic engineering is progress for humanity, and it is a natural extension of more traditional breeding techniques. The other side believes genetically modified foods are unsafe for human consumption...|
|7/10/2015 - Conventional farming has become a reckless institution that pays no heed to soil nutrition, soil microbes, wildflowers and the natural habitat of pollinators. Under today's conventional farming systems, insects and herbs are expendable. Farming now works against nature instead of working with it. The...|
|4/7/2015 - According to The Guardian, the United Kingdom's growing population is bound to face food shortages within the next generation. As self-sufficiency is surrendered away to the demands of corporate monoculture, the people not only lose touch with their food but become dependent on a select agricultural...|
Animal farming uses up an enormous amount of arable land, with 45% of the earth's total dry land covered, as it were, in livestock. Eating a plant based diet, or eating meat only occasionally, can help to reduce greenhouse emissions and save our water and forests.
We may think it doesn't matter...|
|2/26/2015 - When chemicals were first introduced in farming, everyone marveled at what they could do. Yields were dramatically increased. In the beginning, the soil was so healthy, any damage done by chemical fertilizers was imperceptible, and pests had yet to evolve resistance to the insecticides. Our technologies...|
|2/20/2015 - The failures of agricultural monocropping are on full display following the release of a new report suggesting that humanity may have reached or even exceeded "peak food" production -- that is, a crest in the overall growth rate of foods produced in some 21 staple categories including eggs, meat and...|
|1/16/2015 - Change We Can Believe In...
