FEBRUARY, 1987 Court Cases Will Determine Who Owns Water ANAHEIM, CALIF.-Several landmark court cases have changed the way groundwater will be managed in the U.S., according to Dr. Joseph Rossillon, Freshwater Foundation President. Addressing the natural and environmental resources conference at the 68th annual meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation, Rossillon said farmers and ranchers must adopt new policies that address what is quickly becoming a "crisis" in the management and supply of groundwater in the U.S. Rossillon pointed out that groundwater is the source of 73 percent of the nation's drinking water, in general, and accounts for 90 percent of the rural drinking water supply. As opposed to surface water, groundwater "bites the hand that feeds it," he said As the nation's largest user of water, Rossillon said, agriculture should be very concerned about the new direction of recent litigation that has changed the method of groundwater regulation. Particular areas of con...

The delegates endorsed the administration's so-called decoupling concept, which would allow farmers to forgo planting program crops but provide them with most of the deficiency payments they would have received under normal circumstances. The delegates went further than the administration's "0/92 option," which would offer 92 percent of benefits and called for a "0/100" program. The delegates added new language to the policy on international development lending. They said they are "opposed to the World Bank's making subsidized loans to Third World countries for agricultural...

FEBRUARY, 1987 Six Virginia Farms Receive Governor's Award RICHMOND--Gov. Gerald L. Baliles has given the 1986 Virginia Governor's Model Clean Water Farm Award to six state farms. This is the first year of the statesponsored awards program which honors farmers 'for doing exceptional work to prevent agricultural pollution' from entering the state's waterways. Agricultural pollution includes soil erosion, nutrients and chemicals which have been linked to the declining health of the Chesapeake Bay and other bodies of water in the state. Farmers can control such pollution by installing conservation measures cost-shared by the state and federal governments. The Ameva Farm Inc. of Amelia was one of the recipients. The 672-acre farm is owned and operated by Charles E. Dodson and Robert B. Kerr. No-till, stripcropping, crop rotation and more than three-and-a-half acres of grassed waterways are employed on the farm which borders the Appomattox River. More recently, the owners have added an a...

10 Farmers Face Conservation Compliance By Harold Owens (Editor's Note: Harold Owens is an agronomist-writer living in Alexandria.) WASHINGTON, D.C.-The Food Security Act of 1985 makes farmers comply with the conservation requirements in order to qualify for certain U.S. Department of Agriculture programs if they produce crops on highly erodible land. Gary A. Margheim, director of the Soil Conservation Service's Land Treatment Program Division,told the National Outlook Conference in Washington, D.C., recently "--118 million acres of highly erodible land (in the U.S.) are subject to conservation compliance." This is more than one in each four of the nation's 421 million acres of existing cropland. All states and nearly every county in the nation has some highly erodible land or wetlands. The 1985 act contains three conservation provisions that bring more consistency to USD A farm and conservation programs. According to Margheim, "These are the Highly Erodible Land Conservation, Conse...

Vol. 46. No. 2 State Agriculture Needs Growth BLACKSBURG-Recent events have placed Virginia's agriculture sector at great risk, forcing 5 percent of the state's farms out of business in the past six years and increasing financial pressure on the forestry and fishing industries. If Virginia's agricultural sector is to maintain its vital role in the Commonwealth's economy and provide stability for Virginia's communities, it needs leadership and strategic planning from the state. According to a recently completed, comprehensive study of the state's agricultural sector by Virginia's Tech's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service, an essential first step would be better coordination of state agencies to: clearly assign responsibilities, promote program coordination, redirect attention to innovative problem solving, eliminate unnecessary duplication while increasing \ o**' Winner Louis Chisholm, secretary and manager of the products division...

2 Editorials & Opinions ANAHEIM, CALIF.-Until grain producers, commodity marketing specialists and officials of USD A's marketing and inspection service decide grain quality is a priority, U.S. producers will remain under the scrutiny of buyers who demand to know what it is they are purchasing. That was an observation of Darrell Holaday, Kansas Farm Bureau commodity director, speaking on a panel with three grain producers at the grains and oilseeds conference during the 68th annual meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation. Kansas wheat farmer Alan States offered a practical solution to ensuring high quality grains for foreign buyers. Grading standards for wheat and other grains are not descriptive enough, States said. He described wheat using the words, "hard," "red," "test weight," "protein," all words that tell the miller what he's buying. In describing wheat, States was careful to note that he didn't say 98 percent wheat. 'There is no incentive to deliver anythi...

4 Furadan 15-G Controversy Is Continuing RICHMOND-The period for receiving comments on whether or not Furadan 15-G should be banned ended Feb. 20 but the controversy continues. Environmental groups have protested its use because of the chemical's toxicity to birds. During the last 24 months, concern over the death of two bald eagles caused by Furadan 15-G prompted the request for the investigation. The Environmental Protection Agency is also conducting an investigation into the matter. Furadan 15-G is an insecticide/nematicide used on corn, sorghum, tobacco and peanuts.

March, 1987 New Pollution Policy Announced RICHMOND-Pollution liability coverage is the latest addition to the list of insurance policies to be provided to members of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, according to Robert B. Delano, president. The new policy will protect the farmer from legal liability resulting from a "pollution incident" created by the use of chemicals or other pollutants. A pollution incident may be caused by many farming practices today. Edward Desch, executive vice of the the Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co., has requested permission from the state Corporation Commission to begin offering this policy to its members effective April 1. Although only very limited pollution liability coverage will be provided under Farmowners and Farmer's Comprehensive Personal Liability Policies, the new policy will give the farmer much broader coverage than he currently has.

10 How Does Your Garden Grown? (Editor's Note-The following column was provided by Diane Relf, an extension specialist in consumer horticulture with Virginia Tech.) BLACKSBURG~The following is a list of notes to keep in mind in March. Vegetables ♦When buying transplants, choose those plants with a compact, bushy form and bright green leaves. Young, healthy plants with no flowers or flower buds will adapt more easily and overcome the shock of planting much faster. ♦Remember, hardy vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli, lettuce and brussels sprouts, can be transplanted two weeks prior to the average date of the last frost and warm season crops, such as tomatoes, eggplant, pepper, muskmelon and watermelon, should not be planted until all danger of frost is past. ♦Start transplants indoors of tomatoes, peppers and eggplant. ♦If your outdoor space is limited, consider gardening without a garden. Tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and many other vegetables do well when grown in containers. Barrel...
