6 On board: Jenkins raises tobacco and voice for future By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON VFBF Editor BLACKSTONE—Heat made ripples on the horizon as J. M. "Jerry" Jenkins Jr. stepped out onto land that has grown tobacco all his life. The temperature that June day didn't bother the Lunenburg County farmer. It was good for the young tobacco plants that dotted the earth behind him and disappeared over the hill. Jenkins, 54, a Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Board of Directors member going on 16 years, represents Lunenburg, Brunswick, Mecklenburg and Charlotte counties. Tbbacco is the crop on which most fulltime farmers in his district make most of their livings, and Jenkins said he doesn't believe anti-smoking campaigns will make them change their minds about growing it. When Jenkins and his younger brother, CoL James Jenkins, were boys, their parents raised cattle, hogs, grain and cotton, but relied mainly on tobacco for income Now, Jenkins grows tobacco, soybeans and corn on the family farm and...

8 Day-neutral strawberries produce all season long GARDENING THE DOMINION By Ellen Silva k I spent a significant portion of June picking and putting up strawberries. I wish I could claim that I grew them myself, but getting a patch planted just didn't make it onto our schedule last year. It didn't make it onto the schedule this spring either, but that doesn't mean we will go without home-grown strawberries next summer, too. Next spring, I'm going to plant a bed of day-neutral strawberries, and I plan to be picking berries from late summer through frost. The following season the patch should be producing berries all summer and fall. What are day-neutral strawberries? And how do they produce berries all summer long? Day-neutral berries are a relatively new introduction to the strawberry scene Unlike June-bearers, which produce one crop in spring, or everbearers, which produce a small crop in the spring and a second, smaller crop in the fall, day-neutrals produce a crop Farm women prep...

_ j - ,-•- " "" i r SW\ r * x r"\* c^ /\ S \% PHIh s r*^* Vol. 49, No. 8 Farm children's playground a hazard By LORRAINE BLACKWELL Special to Farm Bureau News The farm is not only the home but the workplace for anyone living on a farm, especially children. Children who live on the farm have difficulty separating home activities from farm activities, said Glen H. Hetzel, an Extension agricultural engineer at Virginia Tech, who specializes in agricultural and home safety as well as farm power machinery safety. When farm children go out to play, they walk out the door and they are on the farm, Hetzel said. "So it means that in their daily lives they are exposed to many hazards and many situations that children living elsewhere are not exposed to," he added. Farming is the "deadliest profession" in this country, said Norman Wilkinson, farm safety coordinator for the Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company. There are an estimated 1,500 farmrelated deaths per year in the United States, noted...

2 Agriculture needs you in Speakers Network Over the past two years, American agricultural practices have been, in many cases, unjustly criticized. Most of the blame has surfaced from extremist consumer groups — groups who sometimes have motives far removed from what they appear to be fighting for. Most Americans recognize this illogical behavior, but sometimes these groups gain the ear of the news media. When that happens, consumer opinion can be swayed by perceived problems. Such was the case with the Alar apple scare 18 months ago. A well-planned public relations campaign, which hooked a thencredible news program, CBS's 60-Minutes, convinced the American public that apples treated with Alar were harmful to all who consumed them. It didn't matter that virtually every scientist in America disagreed with these claims. Nor did it matter that the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture found the claims rather extreme as ...

AUGUST 1990 Food (Continued from Page 1) expanded its food safety education to food service managers, dietitians and those responsible for large-scale production in hospitals, nursing homes, day-care centers and schools," he added. Parnell said there is a group of Americans who are not always remembered in the debate about food safety — the poor, who spend a larger share of their budgets on food. He estimated that more than 30 million Americans spend more than 50 percent of their income on food. "If we react carelessly, without science, in response to imagined risks, and thereby needlessly increase food costs, the poor will be the first to notice reduced buying power and higher nutrition costs," he said. "And the effect on much poorer populations beyond our borders would be multiplied." Children (Continued from Page 1) with it only that," Wilkinson said.

4 Women's New York media visit beneficial The American Farm Bureau Women's Committee visit with the media June 25 and 26 in New York was an opportunity for journalists to make some important contacts for future coverage of agriculture and food safety — Farm Bureau members. I talked with Glamour Magazine's food researcher, Sandy Gordon. The food editor, to whom I was originally assigned, was in Washington for the Journalists' Conference on Food Safety and Nutrition at the same time. But I was happy to talk with someone who does the actual legwork for the publication's food stories. Each of our eight AFBF committee members, the chairman and vice chairman talked one-on-one with a food editor or writer from different publications. AFBF President Dean Kleckner attended, too. Before going to New York, I went out and bought the latest issue of Glamour to get familiar with it. The articles on food were not credited to any one person.

. Vol. 49, No. 8 Farm spending under the ax By NORM HYDE VFBF Staff Writer WASHINGTON - The U.S. House of Representatives approved a $54 billion farm bill Aug. 1, but Virginia's representative on the House Agriculture Committee believes that figure won't survive budget negotiations. The House and Senate versions of the 1990 Farm Bill will go to conference committee in September. "I believe the farm program will be asked to make somewhere in the order of $800 million to a billion dollars" in cuts, said Rep. James Olin, D-6th. "That will be a tough vote, when and if it comes," he said. Both houses of Congress chose to freeze farm subsidies at their current levels for the 1990 Farm Bill. Olin said he was disappointed the House didn't continue the 1985 Farm Bill's movement toward reducing crop supports. "That would continue to squeeze a bit tighter on federal subsidies so farmers would be encourage to look even more to the market for their income," Olin said. The Shenandoah Valley congr...

2 Poll shows food misconceptions held A recent public opinion poll conducted by the American Farm Bureau Federation shows that most Americans hold a reasonable view of certain food safety issues. But it also shows the public holds many misconceptions about the safety of the food supply. One way people could learn more, respondents say, is for farmers to speak out more on how food is raised. Further, most Americans favor reduced chemical use, but not total elimination or the status quo. Three-fourths of those polled say farmers use more agricultural chemicals than they should "in order to achieve higher profits." Seventy-nine percent believe many farmers are adopting new methods that reduce chemical use. Half of the respondents hold the incorrect view that most farms are owned by people who do not actually live and work on the farm. We interpret this data as an indication that the farm community must get more involved and take a higher profile. We are hearing this from our county lea...
