Farm Bureau Vol. 49, No. 4 Assembly finds money for farm-related projects By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer RICHMOND—Although the 1990 General Assembly faced the first budget shortfall in years, it found ways to pay for construction projects at the VirginiaMaryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine and two Virginia Farmers' Market sites. The legislature also agreed to offer farmers a state tax credit worth 25 percent of the purchase price of sophisticated pesticide and fertilizer application equipment. (See story, Page 3.) And southwest Virginia farmers will soon receive help from a professional coyote control program, partially funded by the assembly. All four financial issues were major victories for Virginia Farm Bureau Federation members and those legislators who supported them, said VFBF President C. Wayne Ashworth. Vet school money saved Construction of the final phase of the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine could begin late this year under a $7.2 m...

2 Public review of strict wetlands manual needed It is perhaps premature to link a broadening in the definition of a wetland with the security of the nation's food supply. But that very threat is upon us in Virginia and across the nation. Hearings have been conducted by the U.S. House Public Works and TVansportation Committee on the subject, and already the definition of wetlands has been broadened in the United States. Wetlands are, generally speaking, marshes, bogs, and swamps. Our nation, Virginia included, is full of them. They are most prevalent in the eastern third of the state, but are in every county in the Old Dominion. Ironically, many are also on some of the nation's and state's most productive farmland. Specifically, Farm Bureau is concerned about a delineation manual adopted last year without any public comment or review. It greatly expands the amount of land that is now subject to wetlands Hiring farm workers raises many legal questions By ANDREW T. SANDERS Farmers acr...

April 1990 Assembly finds money for farm-related projects (Continued from Page 1) realized when the assembly approved $60,000 for the next two years as the state's share of a USDA cooperative animal damage control program. The allocation includes a $40,000 direct grant. The rest will come from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services budget. The money will pay for a trapper in Blacksburg and a program director in Richmond. Thomas Tbmsa, USDA coyote control specialist, is relocating to Blacksburg from New York state, where he ran a similar program the past three years. "We've had some real good results... Through trial and error we Ve discovered a lot of things that work and a lot of things that don't work, and Virginia (farmers) will get the benefit of that experience," Tbmsa said.

4 Popular and tasty miniature vegetables easy to grow I've always been charmed by miniatures, whether doll houses, animals, or anything else in small scale. I remember one year when my older brother tried to grow sweet corn in our woods. He only harvested a few tiny, but perfect ears. He was disappointed—l was enchanted. Naturally, I approve of one current gardening rage, baby vegetables. Perfectly formed but bite-sized zucchini, beets no bigger than Ping-Pong balls, and teeny-weeny beanies are all fun and easy to grow, tasty to eat and expensive when found at the grocery store. Growing your own is the way to go Zucchini are an excellent vegetable with which to start. No special variety is necessary. Just cut the fruit when they are only two or three days past pollination and are tender, crisp, and delectable Other summer squash can also be used as miniatures. What a great time investment. By harvesting tiny zucchini several times a week you get gourmet produce and eliminate a sourc...

April 1990 Lead subsitutes required for many engines RICHMOND—RuraI Virginians are finding it next to impossible to buy old-fashioned leaded gasoline anymore, as refineries stop making the fuel for lack of demand. But many older farm engines demand the protection lead provides to the metals in their cylinders. Without that protective coating the engine's valves could be seriously damaged, especially when operated under heavy loads. The only economical alternative appears to be lead substitute additives, typically available at any auto parts store under several brand names. Simply pour them into your engine's fuel tank and fill er up. I f that's too much trouble, Southern States Cooperative offers larger supplies of its own lead substitute with Powershield that can be mixed by the farmer in his bulk tank. A 12-ounce bottle at $2.95 treats up to 15 gallons of unleaded gas. Larger quantities are cheaper, noted a cooperative spokesman. "It substitutes sodium, or salt, instead of lead, t...

10 Humor, health and women's roles are explored By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor VIRGINIA BEACH-Farm Bureau women, longtime advocates of improved rural health, explored the medicinal values of laughter March 5 with Dr. Lee Vliet, who began a medical center in 1985 that combines psychiatry, behavioral medicine and internal medicine. "Most of us are so bombarded with stresses, problems and our adult responsibilities in our daily lives that we forget we need to laugh and play," she said in a luncheon speech at the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's 1990 Statewide Women's Conference Former Saturday Review editor Norman Cousins, who was diagnosed with an incurable bone disease of the spine in the mid-19705, is a living example of the effects of humor on health, she noted. Doctors allowed Cousins to move out of the noisy hospital into a hotel where he began watching Candid Camera and other funny video tapes. Through what he called laugh therapy, he began to relax, sleep better and feel l...

Vol. 49, No. 5 Farm Bureau voices concerns to Sens. Warner and Robb WASHINGTON—Virginia Farm Bureau Federation leaders met with Sens. John W. Warner and Charles S. Robb March 29 to discuss current national farm issues. The Virginia farmers asked their legislators to pull for a 1990 Farm Bill similar to the B5 bill and to work on reducing the amount of land currently deemed wetlands. In addition, Farm Bureau asked for repeal of a rule that farmers withhold income tax from farmworkers' wages. They complained that it requires excessive paperwork and is unfair to the workers. Other issues centered on Farm Bureau's quest for a permanent 100-percent tax deduction for the costs of self-employed taxpayers' health insurance premiums. Now, farmers and other self-employed taxpayers are permitted to take a 25-percent deduction for health insurance costs.

2 Farmers live Earth Day daily, strive for balance Earth Day was celebrated April 22 to draw attention to the importance of preserving all the natural resources this great planet of ours has to offer. Farm Bureau commends such an effort. The more we can do to preserve our resources, the better. Farmers understand this perhaps more than anyone else. We work with two of the most vital components on earth: soil and water. Our concerns are rooted deeply in the soil because our livelihoods depend on it. Therefore, we've always worked to protect our land and water. Such practices as Integrated Pest Management, strip cropping, and the establishment of conservation plans are several examples. But we're always looking for new ways to improve. Thanks to our lobbying efforts in the 1990 General Assembly, well add another environmental program to the list. Legislation was approved that provides financial incentives for farmers who purchase more precise fertilizer and pesticide applicating equip...

May 1990 permits, reviews are required (Continued from Page 1) today," he said. 'The Fifth Amendment has been bypassed. Compensation to owners has never been mentioned." Never mind, he said, that Virginia Beach has the highest corn yields in the state. While farmers find the regulations unbearable and an infringement of property rights, federal officials point to the overall ecology of the United States. "There were 200 million acres of wetlands in this country during Colonial times. Now, there are 100 million, mainly because of agricultural conversion," Machol charged. "Wetlands help recharge aquifers," explained Spingarn. "Groundwater is dependent on recharge through wetlands. Wetlands provide breeding grounds for ducks, birds and other wildlife." From the mid-1950s to the mid-19705, Spingarn said the country lost 440,000 acres of wetlands annually to highways, houses, buildings and farms. During that same period, Spingarn said Virginia lost 57,000 acres of inland forested wetland...
