Marine life jeopardized by record crop sizes

A report by Kent Garber of U.S News & World Report shows that U.S. farming policy, which is leading to record crop sizes, is having a negative impact on marine life. With more land being planted, more chemicals are leaching from fertilizers and passing on to streams and rivers creating vast "dead zones" in areas such as the Gulf of Mexico and Chesapeake Bay. Conservation practices meant to protect waterways are falling to the wayside because there is greater profit for farmers in planting more land.
