Raising a stink
It’s encouraging to hear WSU research agronomists are weighing in on the controversial practice of using Seattle’s sewage sludge on farm ground. Biosolids and dewatered septage are more than just an awful odor nuisance.
There are many questions about the wisdom of the application of these products on wheat and other food. Example, what do heavy metals do to the soil after years of use? I hope these and other concerns will be addressed before it’s too late!
