Renewable Fuel Standard reality check
The Renewable Fuel Standard has been so successful that the oil industry now sees ethanol as a major threat to its bottom line. Unfortunately, Annette Meeks’ opinion piece, “Ethanol mandate hurts environment,” recently published in Agweek, shamelessly parroted many of the oil industry’s false claims about ethanol and repeatedly cites skewed facts from an Associated Press story that can only be described as a “hatchet job” against the ethanol industry.

Microdosing improves productivity in crops
URBANA, Ill. — Crop yields in the fragile semi-arid areas of Zimbabwe have been declining as a result of a decline in soil fertility resulting from mono-cropping, lack of fertilizer and other factors. In collaboration with the Internat- ional Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics, University of Illinois researchers evaluated the use of a precision farming technique called “microdosing,” its effect on food security and its ability to improve yield at a low cost to farmers.

Sustainability claims need evidence to back them up
“Just thinking or saying you’re sustainable isn’t good enough.” That’s what McDonald’s Corp. executive Bob Langert told cattlemen last month. Consumers want proof. It might be hard to define such an abstraction, let alone prove what you’ve always done. Developing wells, practicing responsible grazing, protecting wildlife habitats — maybe that’s just part of who you are as a rancher.

Helping hands
“Many hands make light work,” goes the old saying. We’ve probably all heard or lived those words. It comes from an old English playwright named Heywood, the Google tells me, but it’s as true today as it was in 1546.
