New Research Shows: Organic Farming Can Make an Important Contribution to World Nutrition 16.11.2017 Environmental News Network
A global conversion to organic farming can contribute to a profoundly sustainable food system, provided that it is combined with further measures, specifically with a one-third reduction of animal-based products in the human diet, less concentrated feed and less food waste. At the same time, this type of food system has extremely positive ecological effects, i.e. considerable reduction of fertilizers and pesticides, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions – and does not lead to increased land use, despite lower agricultural yields. These are the findings of a new study, which included the Vienna-based Department of Social Ecology among its contributors. Results have recently been published in “Nature Communications”.

GMO apples heading to Midwest supermarkets 8.11.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Genetically modified fruit salad just got real. Along with virus-resistant papayas, apples are joining the ranks of biotech fruit sold in U.S. grocery stores. The first commercial harvest of GMO golden delicious apples will be going from Washington state orchards to 400 Midwestern grocery stores this month. They will be sliced up and sold in 10-ounce bags, and because they’re modified, they take much longer to brown when exposed to the air. While GMO crops are the mainstream for U.S. commodities like corn and soybeans, that isn’t the case with fruits.
