    im Crawford was rushing to load crates of freshly picked organic tomatoes onto trucks heading for an urban farmers market when he noticed the federal agent. A tense conversation followed as the visitor to his farm ó an inspector from the Food and Drug Administration ó warned him that some organic-growing techniques he had honed over four decades could soon be outlawed. "This is my badge. These are the fines. This is what is hanging over your head, and we want you to know that," Crawford says the official told him.

    The New York Times ^ | 30 Dec 2013 | Edward Wong
    The farm-to-table process in China starts in villages like this one in the agricultural heartland. Food from the fields of Ge Songqing and her neighbors ends up in their kitchens or in the local market, and from there goes to other provinces. The foods are Chinese staples: rice, cabbage, carrots, turnips and sweet potatoes. But the fields are ringed by factories and irrigated with water tainted by industrial waste. Levels of toxic heavy metals in the wastewater here are among the highest in China, and residents fear the soil is similarly contaminated. Though they have no scientific proof, they suspect...

    In tropical South Florida, it's growing season. Temperatures are in the 80s, there's lots of sun and good rain, and normally, Hermine Ricketts' plants would already be in the ground. "By now, this should be probably Red Sails lettuce, which is a beautiful color lettuce, or purple mizuna, which is a beautiful filigreed purple leaf," she says. But this year, Ricketts' vegetable planting has been derailed by a legal fight over what she can plant and where she can plant it. Her garden is in the front yard of her home in Miami Shores, because that's where the sun is...

    A plant that produces both tomatoes and potatoes, called the TomTato, has been developed for the UK market. Ipswich-based horticultural firm Thompson and Morgan said the hybrid plants were not genetically modified. Similar plants have been created in the UK, but the firm said it was thought to be the first time they had been produced on a commercial scale. Guy Barter, of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), said it was looking at the plant with "real interest". Mr Barter said many of these plants - created by a technique known as grafting - had been created before but taste...
