14 Farmers' Market experts face tough questions By NORM HYDE VFB Staff Writer RICHMOND—A marketing experts team faces a Sept. 1 deadline to answer hard nuts-and-bolts questions before construction can begin on the first four proposed Farmers' Markets. "We're talking about who, what, where, when and how," said Doug Cooper, director of domestic marketing with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services which is coordinating the team. 'There are basically four locations proposed; we plan to answer each of these questions for each personalized location." Cooper's group of marketing experts will actually answer some 60 separate questions about each market site, such as how it will be managed, how and where the delivered produce will be marketed, how it will fit into a statewide farmers' market system, and how much money the state will be expected to contribute toward its construction and operation. The 1988 General Assembly appropriated $4.9 million to the Farmers' Marke...

LQL - - Vol. 47, No. 8 Good or bad Drought is big news KATHY BUTLER VFB News Editor The drought may well be the biggest news story of 1988. It was called the worst extended shortage of moisture since 1934, as its path of destruction was traced across 30 states in early July. But one heartwarming story to come out of the hardship was the donation of 2,000 square bales of hay by Charlotte County farmers to hard-hit dairy and hog operators in Mercer County, Ohio. A convoy of Goodyear trucks delivered the hay. Called Haylift '88, the gesture was a return of generosity. Mercer County farmers had shared hay with Charlotte County farmers two years ago when the Southern states were ravaged by drought. Similar stories about hay donations around the state and nation continue to make headlines. And farmers in the parched southwest portion of Virginia have been among the people in need of hay. An area from about Blacksburg west is on the fringe of the drought. In mid-July, farmers there began b...

2 Farmers were first environmentalists With conservation one of the most important environmental issues of the era, more and more farmers are being unfairly linked with pollution of our soil and water. Critics say farmers are large contributors to the pollution of our underground water systems, our soil, our rivers, and in Virginia, the Chesapeake Bay. But critics often tend to look only at one point in time. With the creation of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation several years ago and the Chesapeake Bay Act during the 1988 General Assembly, it's easy to concentrate on agricultural pollution, as though farmers in the past haven't been aware of the problem and as though they've never taken steps to avoid such pollution. The Virginia farmer has been protecting his land and surrounding waters since Colonial days and has realized the necessity for such conservation. It isn't something new for farmers, like it is for so many of the outspoken critics. The determination and resourcefulness of t...

August, 1988 Dean Speaks Veterinary School not going down the tubes By GREG HICKS VFB Director of Communications BLACKSBURG—Virginia Tech has been shrouded in controversy for several years, acknowledges the dean of the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. But he says many of those controversies are unfounded, including the recent negative publicity about the veterinary school. Dr. Peter Eyre, speaking to a group of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation officials during Agri-Tech '88 July 6, blamed the media and other institutions for constantly overplaying and many times inaccurately depicting problems of the university. "The college doesn't seem to be able to get out of this controversial mode of operation," Dr. Eyre explained. Negative publicity also surfaced last year over a land acquisition by the university, the resignations of former president William Lavery and former athletic director and football coach Bill Dooley, and over several reports involving athletes...

4 Farmers can cut hay on set-aside acreage without penalty Farmers in 10 southwest Virginia counties are eligible for all emergency feed grain programs offered by the USD A. The counties that had won drought declarations by late July are Lee, Scott, Russell, Washington, Tazewell, Smyth, Grayson, Bland, Wythe and Carroll. Pulaski County farmers have requested a designation. Wilson Leggett with the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service in Richmond said all farmers may now cut hay from set-aside acres with no penalty, as long as it's donated to state haylift programs. For farmers in drought areas, one of the provisions of the feed program allows them to cut hay or graze livestock on all land enrolled in government set-aside programs. There's no penalty for doing so, Leggett said, unless the land is in the Conservation Reserve Program. In that case, farmers will lose 25 percent of annual government payments for that program. Entomologist named academy fellow BLACKSBURG—Jam...

The Virginia Department of Labor and Industry has officially adopted a federal Hazcom standard to go into effect as soon as an appeal to a federal court is settled.

9 Editor's note: This editorial column is published annually in conjunction with policy development hearings the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation holds throughout the state. Federal Tax Policy A major reform of the federal income tax occurred in 1986 with more changes in 1987. While many aspects of the reform are favorable to farmers and ranchers, other provisions are costly and troublesome. Some of the costly provisions are capitalization requirements for preproductive period expenses, the elimination of capital gains treatment, the repeal of income averaging and the diesel fuel excise tax collection for offroad use. ■H vHI -ft flr ■ . j, ■! Bkt ■ HKj ; | a s , Mtf - 3£M| A/ ■ „ Targets for higher excise taxes will include tabacco.

August, 1988 Virginia products Department changes to tap customers markets By KATHY BUTLER VFB News Editor RICHMOND—HeIping Virginia growers and producers find the best markets for their quality products at home and abroad is the purpose of the new structure within the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. "We can't sell successfully outside if we're not taking advantage of opportunities to do it inside," said Robert E. Gomperts, who began in November as state agricultural marketing director with the Division of Marketing. Virginia wines, for instance, have only 2.7 percent of the state's wine consumption, but Gomperts believes it would not be asking too much to strive for 4 percent. Gomperts is a past president of the California Council of International Trade and has 41 years of experience marketing agricultural products. Shortly after Gov. Gerald Baliles took office he requested a study of the department of agriculture by an outside team that could make some recom...

10 Hot days can mean potent pot plants By KATHY BUTLER VFB News Editor Just because corn, soybeans and backyard vegetable gardens are suffering in hot, dry weather through parts of Virginia, don't assume the marijuana crop is altogether wiped out. In fact, a plant expert says that plants not seized may become very potent because of the heat and long days. Larry Moore, head of the Virginia Tech's department of plant pathology, physiology and weed science, notes those conditions turn on the marijuana plant's sensitivity and cause it to create a higher concentration of alkaloids. Alkaloids are compounds that have an effect on humans who smoke the pot, he says. Nicotine and caffeine are alkaloids, too. Virginia Farm Bureau Federation urges members to keep their eyes as open as ever for the illegal crop, which trespassers may be growing on the unsuspecting farmer's land or nearby. "We're still encouraging members to take part in the Virginia Marijuana Eradication Suppression Program and ...

August, 1988 Joins Governor in Israel Board member takes 'people-to-people' tour By KATHY BUTLER VFB News Editor Dairyman Hershel Gardner doesn't like to leave his home at Mount Solon in Augusta County for long at a time. But the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Board member is glad he took Gov. Gerald Baliles up on an invitation to tour Israel with him in late April. A delegation of 140 Virginia Jews and gentiles took the eight-day trip, which was the climax of the Virginia-Israel Commission project Baliles instigated two years ago. The commission, funded by the General Assembly and private donations, allowed exchanges between people from the Old Dominion and the Israel, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary as a nation this year. Gardner, an ex-officio member of the Virginia State Dairyman's Association, and John Miller, the association's executive secretary and treasurer, were the only representatives of the dairy industry in the group to visit Israel in April "It was a people...

14 Drought won't dry food supply (continued from Page 1) possible to check prices of fourteen food items in local stores starting in August. A survey will be taken this way the first week of each month to monitor the effects of the drought. "We have reserves of most of the commodities we're talking about," said Robert Delano, VFBF president. He said food prices should not increase anymore than the 3 percent to 5 percent the USD A predicted earlier this year. From a farmer's standpoint, the major concern will be the shortage of forage all across the U.S., said Delano. All the sweat and good intentions poured out by farmers to cut, load and send hay to other farmers only provide temporary relief. Ohio's agriculture director, Steven Maurer, attended the July 1 haylift ceremony at Charlotte County Court House to personally thank the farmers there for their efforts.
