I'm not from Vt., but have talked with folks who are, and it sounds as though
the spraying of an adjoining farm corn field that drifted over the organic
operation has yellowed and wilted most of this season's crop there. I also
heard it will probably go into litigation, if it hasn't already. That won't
save the crop, and may not save the topsoil. Sounds tragic.
