By JOHN LAIRD Having grown up in the Oil Patch of West Texas - where environmental activism means using fuel-efficient bulldozers - I might not be considered qualified to enlist in the "green" army that's mustering across the country. For the longest time I thought "sustainability" was how long you could hold your breath while under water. But part of my five-year conversion to Northwesternism has been a greater awareness of the value of garbage. I must confess that when I became...

By Brinton, William F Evans, Eric; Blewett, Craig Boron (B) is a trace element essential to crop growth in small soil concentrations (0.2-1.5ppm), yet may produce plant toxicity symptoms readily as the amount in the soil solution increases over 2ppm. Boron is present in significant amounts in recycled materials such as municipal solid waste (MSW) and coal fly ash, and therefore composts containing these ingredients may potentially exceed agronomic B levels, especially when used at heavy...
