The book, Environmen- tal Quality and Food Supply, edited by Philip L. White and Diane Bobbins of the association's de- partment of foods and nutrition, is the outgrowth of a seminar on the subject sponsored by the organization. It says society must accept an element of risk to the quality of the en- vironment from pro- duction and processing of food to maintain the highest possible level of supply in a world where millions are chronically hungry. It calls for a reordering of priorities to seek solutions to environmental and food supply problems so that continued high production of food is main- tained with a minimum of damage to the en- vironment. "A present-day madness exists within our society pertaining to the environ- ment and the safety, ade- quacy and quality of our food supply." the book's introduction. Pesticides and commer- cial fertilizers are necessary to keep up the vital high production of food The authors say un- predictable and often hasty restrictions have made it less attractive to invest in development of pesticides It costs S5 million to de- velop a new pesticide with a lapse of 13 to 18 >cars before a company can begin to break even on its inwslnwnl Test forest helps honey GUELPH, Ont. (CP) Growing a forest to increase honey production may seem extraor- dinary, but it isn't. Researchers at the Ontario Agricultural College, said the provinc's honey crop has dropped nearly 66 per cent in recent years. The reason is that sweet clover and buckwheat, at one time the two most vital nectar-producing crops, have been replaced by corn and cash crops which have little use in honey production. Honey always has been at the mercy of farm crops, resulting in "up-again, down-again" cycles, said the researchers. In an effort to find a solution, they are con- ducting experiments on growing "honey orchards." Prof. G. F. Townsend, one of the researchers, said: "The experiment under way is a first attempt m North America to grow a plant specifically for honey production." The focus is on the black locust, a fast-growing abundant nectar producer which blooms anywhere from two weeks to the whole summer, depending on the strain. Prof. Townsend has grown about trees at the Arkell and Cambridge stations. Nine acres are being used as nurseries, enabling the researchers to gather information about the tree's growing characteristics in different soils. Researchers have segregated three species that flower at different times and one that shows resistance to the locust borer, a pest that might cause problems in the orchards. Prof. Townsend says the response to the ex- periment has been encouraging with the present stock of seedlings booked for planting in 1974. The province will use nearly seedlings on a farm in Hasting County with the remainder going to beekeepers and fanners interested in starting a honey producing orchard.
