Then at 6pm, it’s a new episode of Sound Bites. This week, we discuss the controversy over pesticides in our environment with the release of two reports detailing the prevalence of pesticides in the Chesapeake Bay, and a new piece of legislation going before the Maryland General Assembly that would require pesticide applicators, like farmers and pesticide sellers, to report information about them to the state. Joining us to talk about this are:
- Dr. Ruth Berlin, Executive Director of the Maryland Pesticide Network;
- Drew Norman, organic farmer in White Hall, Maryland, who, with his wife Joan, runs One Straw Farm;
- Bill Angstadt, Executive Secretary of the Delaware Maryland Agribusiness Association;
- and Jay Feldman, co-founder and Executive Director of Beyond Pesticides.
