Sustainable Farming magazine is pleased to announce that it has been awarded an honourable mention in the Best Editorial category of the PACT Awards - Profitable Agriculture Conservation Technology. The editorial, entitled "Potential for the Prairies . . . and Beyond," was written by SF editor Roger Samson and managing editor Hugh Maynard concerning the utility and promise that warm season grasses offer simultaneously for biomass energy production and the environment. It was published in the Fall 1991 issue of SF.
The awards are sponsored annually by the Conservation Technology Information Centre and the Soil and Water Conservation Society in the U.S. They are intended to "honour superior writing and broadcasting by North American journalists on the environmental and economic aspects of conservation technology." Over 130 entries were placed in four different categories and our cousins over at Country Guide took top honours in the Best Series category for a series of articles on agriculture and the environment.
Yes, we know, we're late, and summer has already slipped into fall; so we have the Summer-Fall issue of SF. Work was extremely busy at the REAP office during the summer months, with two large projects getting underway for biomass research. Needless to say, there was more than one deadline that was always clamouring to get to the top of the pile and have some attention paid to it. Never fear, there will be a Fall issue following shortly and then the regular issue schedule will resume with the Winter and Spring issues. Thanks for your
