That's the first I'd heard of that but if you do a search for "nosema ceranae" you get lots of hits. Lots of folks on the bandwagon and lots of researchers claiming credit. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
My bees are not on organic farms and they are doing fine. One yard is at a farm where a big farmer does no til uses lots of chemicals. Another is at a horse farm where the biggest crop is alalfa, sprayed every year with a pestiside. A tree nursery owner sprays for all the ailements trees may develope.
One thing My bees do not get is, loaded on a semi truck and hualed all over the country and stressed. May be that is why my bees are doing fine.
