Toxic Waste as Fertilizer

Seattle Times reporter Duff Wilson was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for his investigative series, Fear in the Fields--How Hazardous Wastes Become Fertilizer, which found that, across the United States, industrial wastes laden with heavy metals and other dangerous materials are being used in fertilizers and spread over farmland. Now Duff has developed the series into a book, Fateful Harvest, revealing the shocking details of American manufacturing industries that dump toxic waste into our soil by passing it off as fertilizer.
