Vol 52, NO. 8 Counties hard hit by lack of rain By NORM HYDE VFBF Broadcast Editor MINERAL—More than 20 Virginia localities have declared drought disaster status. At press time, 23 areas had requested assistance and more declarations were in the pipeline. Virginia Tech officials predict crop losses could amount to $75 million by this fall. By Aug. 25, state agriculture officials had already documented $54.1 million dollars in crop losses in 22 counties. But Virginia Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Dr. Clinton Turner also expects virtually all farmers to be eligible for some financial relief in coming months. "About 60 percent of the state" appears to have suffered crop losses from this summer's drought," Turner told approximately 1,200 Virginia corn and soybean formers attending the annual Ag Expo Conservation Field Day Aug. 12. Because farmers in counties adjacent to those declared federal disaster areas are also eligible to apply for emergency loans, "we will pro...

2 Criticism of government farm spending unjustified Farming has changed dramatically since Abraham Lincoln created the U.S. Department of Agriculture more than 125 years ago. We've advanced from work animals to tractors, computers and even transgenic pigs. We've increased our efficiency and production with fewer and fewer farmers. We've improved the quality of food and fiber and Americans are healthier today than at any other time in history. Nevertheless, criticism of the agriculture industry has intensified, spurred by reports—many of them sensationalized — that government farm spending is a waste of taxpayers' money. Several recent newspaper editorials condemning agriculture programs prompted me to respond. While I agree wholeheartedly that Congress should reduce the agriculture budget along with all other federal budgets, I take offense to some of the accusations. Farm Bureau supports efforts to restructure the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and wants to have an active role in ...

September/October 1993 Farmers tell Warner Clean Water Act doesn't need major overhaul By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor HARRISONBURG—If it's not broken, don't fix it. That's what a lobbyist for the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation told Sen. John Warner, R-Va., at a recent hearing on the reauthorization of the federal Clean Water Act. Warner is on the Senate committee charged with revamping the act. "The current program's not broke," said John Johnson, VFBF assistant public affairs director. "It doesn't need a drastic overhaul." He was referring to the voluntary approach for non-point source pollution programs and best management practices by farmers called for by the existing Clean Water Act. Congress is under pressure from environmental groups to increase regulation and make these practices mandatory. Best Management Practices, or BMPs, are an array of environmental farming techniques designed to conserve soil erosion and limit agricultural runoff. They include such things as ...

4 National Farm Safety and Health Week observed in September; year-round For 50 years now, Americans have been observing National Farm Safety and Health Week. This year, the observance was Sept. 19-25. During that week, various farm and safety organizations emphasized child, tractor and chemical safety on U.S. farms and ranches. "Farm safety is crucial to the future of American agriculture," said Bruce Stone, safety coordinator for the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. "We want to do everything we can to make farmers aware of potential safety hazards on their farms and teach them how those hazards can be avoided or minimized." The 1993 theme for National Farm Safety and Health Week is "Safety and Health... Agriculture's Future." It is intended to promote the idea that everyone in America should be concerned about agricultural production and its longevity and strength in the global arena. Each farmer or rancher in the U.S. feeds nearly 100 people. Emerging technologies mean that numbe...

September/October 1993 TOMMY HICKS® FECIAL PHOTO Dry hydrants pull water from lakes, ponds and streams. Fire departments get help from VFB dry hydrant program By KATHY DIXON Farm Bureau News Editor Residents of 23 rural localities will sleep better at night knowing there is a readily accessible water supply should their house catch fire. Local fire departments in each of the communities now have access to an adequate supply of water for fighting such blazes, thanks to an innovative program initiated by the Virginia Farm Bureau. This fall, fire departments in those 23 communities will receive up to $750 in cost-share monies from the Farm Bureau to install dry fire hydrants. Dry hydrants are non-pres-surized pipe systems installed in existing lakes, ponds and streams that provide a ready supply of raw water to fire departments for fighting fires. The hydrants reduce the time required to fill tanker trucks and the amount of equipment and men required to put out flames. Through the safe...

8 Attractions are plentiful around 'Star City of the South' ROANOKE—The Roanoke Valley was discovered by colonial explorers in the 17th century. What they found were "blue mountains and a snug valley beside the Upper Roanoke River," according to a pioneer party's report in 1671. Now, more than 300 years later, blue mountains still nestle the valley and there are many sites to explore. While attending the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 68th Annual Convention in this diverse city, you can see why Roanoke is called "Star City of the South," visit one of the oldest farmers' market in Virginia, or tour Center in the Square, a multi-cultural complex housing a theater, planetarium and history, science and art museums. Also in the city is the Virginia Museum of Transportation, which highlights Roanoke's rail roots and includes programs and exhibits on trains as well as space rockets and highway vehicles.

"They're helping the small grower be more profitable," Ms. Israel said. Study prompts market system The concept of a statewide farmers' market network began in 1985 when a legislative study examined the need for one in Virginia. Results indicated that many small farmers lacked the time and money to market produce successfully and that a statewide network of farmers' markets could be beneficial to them. In 1986 the Virginia Farmers' Market Board was created to set up guidelines and policies relating to a network of markets. Board members agreed that the system should provide an efficient means of marketing farm produce in quantity, quality and variety sufficient to ...
