    An analysis of 115 studies comparing organic and conventional farming finds that the crop yields of organic agriculture are higher than previously thought. Researchers also found that taking into account methods that optimize the productivity of organic agriculture could minimize the yield gap between organic and conventional farming.

    In southeast Costa Rica near the Panamanian border, there’s a group of farmers growing bananas and cocoa without pesticides. Two indigenous groups work communally owned land in the buffer zone surrounding La Amistad National Park. Their cooperative is called the Talamanca Small Farmers Association.But Talamanca’s growers face the same discouraging problem year after year: They work in a rural area. Some farmers transport their bananas for an hour by boat, and then another three hours by truck, to a processing plant owned by a Chiquita subsidiary. Often, the bananas have to wait for the…

    A study assessed growth performance of tomato seedlings treated with vermicompost-leachate (VCL), an organic liquid produced from earthworm-digested material. Seedlings were subjected to various temperature and watering regimes. Results showed that VCL can be a suitable soil amendment product to improve overall soil fertility and growth of tomato plants, even under temperature and water stress conditions.
  • As temperatures rise, soil will relinquish less carbon to the atmosphere than predicted

    17 Nov 2014 | 10:24 am
    Current climate models probably overestimate the amount of carbon that will be released from soil into the atmosphere as global temperatures rise, according to research. The findings are from a new computer model that explores the feedbacks between soil carbon and climate change. It's the first such model to include several physiologically realistic representations of how soil microbes break down organic matter, a process that annually unleashes about ten times as much carbon into the atmosphere as fossil fuel emissions.

    Most of you have heard of Lyme disease, but do you know how it’s caused? Sure, a tick has to bite you, but there’s a little more to it than that. First, there are two types of ticks: hard and soft. This is important because the tick has to have a hard shell, and it needs to be infected with a class of bacteria called Borellia. [1] If that infected tick bites you, you’ll develop symptoms like fever, headache, and fatigue. You might even develop a non-itchy rash that’s warm to the touch. If you’ve been bitten by a tick lately and have symptoms, don’t ignore them. If Lyme disease…

  • Kitchen Basics: Making homemade ghee

    Diane Fluin
    14 Dec 2014 | 12:37 pm
    Welcome to your new favorite fat.Ghee is a form of clarified butter, which is just butter without the milk/dairy solids in it. It’s those solids that cause butter to scorch at a high temperature, which is why butter is not your best bet for sautéing or frying at high temperatures. However, with the solids removed, ghee has a higher smoke point even than olive oil and coconut oil, and those high temperatures become your friend again.And it’s not just for cooking. You can use ghee in any way you might use butter: spread on bread or toast, or melted as a topping for meats or vegetables.

This is particularly true during the holidays, when prep time is limited, or nonexistent due to other food and hosting tasks needed that night. Second, I want to be able to mingle and socialize during the gathering, instead of being stuck at the bar or in the kitchen, making single drinks to order. Last, and most importantly, I want…

We consume a lot of processed, precooked food, our fridges are stuffed with all kind of junk, instead of having natural raw products and cook them ourselves. And if you are interested to find out how this affects us as a nation, as a country, you should just compare the statistics related to health issues in various countries. People,…

If I lack inspiration, I just open my Instagram (by the way, follow me there @albinageenstore) and check what other people are…

    Natural feeding of infants with breast milk is considered to be the best way of giving your child the most adequate nutrition, but also providing psychological comfort.
