Extractions: The Future of Agriculture on the Great Plains By William Patrie. Now many commodities produced in the Great Plains are at great risk of being replaced by commodities produced in other parts of the world where land and labor is cheaper and the land is newer and requires less inputs. Others at this conference can report on the commodity price misery being experienced on the Great Plains. I won't, other than to say that it is a necessary time of sadness, for farm families do not want to let go of their position in food chain as commodity producers. It is like dying. But something new is happening. Like crocuses through the snow of Easter, new businesses are forming. They are businesses formed by farmers who ask financially strapped neighbors to invest money and commit quality products. Soybeans are now being sold as oil, durum wheat as pasta, hard red spring wheat as partially baked frozen bread, corn as sweeteners, alfalfa to milk and cheese, hogs as hams, and cattle as dinning entertainment The Future of Agriculture In North Dakota North Dakota Farmers from All Things Considered, (Real Audio) Thursday, July 5, 2001. Reporter Clay Scott travels to rural western North Dakota, a region that demographers predict will lost up to a third of its population over the next two decades. But as many farmers and ranchers continue to leave the area, some are embracing new exotic crops and animals as a way to continue to live off the land in a place they love. (7:00) Curt Stofferahn was interviewed for this report on All Things Considered.

Extractions: Coffee strikes me as an excellent candidate for a Global Stewardship example, also eminently relevant to examination of environmental justice issues. It's necessary to start to gather up the materials: books in Annie Here's what I found on a Starbuck's cup the other day: Building Relationships With Coffee Growers world's most exceptional coffees. That can be disassembled and analyzed into a remarkable collection of messages...

Extractions: The great point is to bring them the real facts. Abraham Lincoln When British shoppers were reportedly quite willing to buy tomato paste openly labelled as genetically engineered a few years ago, were they making an informed decision? Did they know the real facts? Do Canadian shoppers buying unlabelled transgenic potato products marketed under well known brands know enough to ask whether they should be patronizing these products? Do American consumers of dairy products realize that rBST was approved by the US FDA based in part on a proponent-written summary of a 90 day feeding trial with 30 rats - a trial which has never been subject to peer review and published? Have they learned that a more critical review of the actual data from same trial revealed major discrepancies between the proponent summary of "no toxicologically significant changes" and the actual trial results showing that range of rBST-induced adverse health effects? Or that this issue contributed to the 14 Jan 99 Canadian decision to reject rBST, despite 9 years of intensive lobbying by Monsanto?

Extractions: "Globalization is a growing trend also in science, where knowledge is being privatized" eing a crop scientist today is not easy. Although crop research was chiefly responsible for last century's fourfold increase in average yields and sixfold rise in total harvest, biological agricultural science is increasingly equated with threats to human health, environmental degradation and, above all, genetically-modified "frankenfood". In order to continue their contribution to human development, crop scientists must regain credibility and public acceptance. That process might begin by analysing, from an ethical perspective, trends in the world around us and the scientific challenges they pose. Basic trend: uneven distribution of food.
