RE: (Fwd) listserve message



Marilyn,

Look at the EPA site  NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL PUBLICATIONS INTERNET SITE
http://www.epa.gov/ncepihom/nepishom/srch.htm  Then you can search by topic.

	Below find some web sites that may help.  Another suggestion is to
seek states with some similar climate, soil conditions, etc as your
location.  After finding those states, contact universities with farming
programs in those states.

Hawaii Solid and Hazardous Waste Branch has committed to support the Western
Regional Pollution Prevention Center and to serve as the lead agency
collecting good resources on Pollution Prevention opportunities and
technologies for the Agricultural Industry and P2 relating to Island
Ecosystems.   So far, we have collected very little information.

Please help us to expand our bibliography of P2 Agriculture information.
Since we are primarily a regulatory agency addressingwaste management and
minimization,  our current library is limited to  composting information,
and this topic is much broader.

We have defined the topic to include the following information: 
 Pesticide application efficiency, less toxic substitutes, natural  pest
control alternatives; Composting;   Water efficiency and water use
reduction; Runoff prevention/control and soil conservation; and Energy
efficiency and energy use reduction in agricultural  activities.

If you can forward your recommendations for useful and informative P2
resources which address agriculture or island ecosystems, kindly forward the
names and the sources by either E-mail, fax or mail.
