York Times carried a plea this week for more attention to
food and nutrition policy from presidential candidates.
So is Jerry Hagstrom, who has given permission to re-post these
links from his Hagstrom
Report, a daily newsletter about “agriculture news as it
happens,” to which I gratefully subscribe (the
Washington Post just ran a story about him).
Hagstrom collected agricultural position
