June, 1987 How Does Your Garden Grow? (Editor's note: This information was provided by Diane Relf and Alan McDaniel, extension specialists in horticulture, and Vicki Karagianis, urban gardening coordinator, all of Virginia Tech.) RICHMOND-The amount of fertilizer to apply to a garden depends on the natural fertility of the soil, the amount of organic matter present, the type of fertilizer used and the crop being grown. The best way to determine fertilizer needs is to have the soil tested. Soil testing is available through your local extension agent, private labs and with soil test kits which can be purchased from garden shops and catalogs. Vegetables fall into three main categories, according to their fertilizer requirements-heavy feeders, medium feeders and light feeders. You may find it advantageous to group crops in your garden according to their fertilizer requirements to make application easier. Around The House (Editor's note: This is the first in a sixpart series on budget ho...

Continued from Page 2 premium was included in the Senate s tax reform bill. By the time the issue was resolved with the House in conference, the deduction was reduced substantially. The original 50 percent deduction had been co-sponsored in freestanding legislation (H.R. 11 and S. 419) by 194 representatives and 29 senators. The TRA allows a 25 percent deduction for health insurance premiums for 1987, 1988 and 1989. The deduction will be allowed only if the coverage is provided under one or more plans meeting the new fringe benefit non-discrimination rules. As a result, it appears that employees will have to be covered under an employer provided health insurance plan. As written, this provision cause problems because it is doubtful that many self-employed taxpayers, especia...

Farm Bureau Vol. 46, No. 7 Extension service makes a comeback By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor BLACKSBURG-No increase in federal spending, spiraling operating costs and inflation challenged Virginia Tech to change its policies but not its services. According to Mitchell R. Geasler, director of the extension division, the VCES is making a comeback. "In the process we made some decisions that probably caused some eyebrows to raise," he said. The most controversial was the decision not to replace that retired or quit the extension service. "We had to freeze positions in January 1986," he said. "We have simply not hired anybody." For the first time in over a year the extension service has advertised 12 agricultural and home economics openings in various locations throughout the state. Geasler said he expects to fill soon after July 1. However, VCES took steps to compensate for the lack of personnel and they are still in effect. "We have looked and invested in some things we hope will im...

2 OBSERVATIONS From The Tractor Seat Take pride in Chippokes RICHMOND—AII Virginians should be proud that the Chippokes Plantation was left to the state of Virginia. Virginia farmers and all those related to the agricultural sector should be doubly proud and thankful for the gift. The opportunities for historical presentations for the evolvement of Virginia agriculture, its past, present and future directions and recognition of its leaders are unlimited. The contribution made by Mrs. Victor Appeal to ag community SURRY—A renewed appeal is being made to Virginia's agricultural community for contributions to complete the Agriculture and Forestry Center at historic Chippokes State Park. Chippokes Plantation is the oldest continuously farmed plantation in the country, having been in production since before 1626.

July, 1987 Diversify the usual markets with unusual commodities By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor RlCHMOND—Diversification or producing commodities or services that are suitable to an area but have not been tried in the past is the latest trend in agriculture. The key to making diversification work is marketing, said Rob Waring, director of Virginia Farm Bureau's Grain Division. "You should not go into diversification thinking you're going to get rich," he said. Before a farmer experiments with diversification, Waring said, there are a couple of steps he should take first. First, do some research to find out what products are needed. For instance, a farmer might decide to sell firewood, raise fish or start a handyman service for his county. Second, determine what resources you can provide. "I would go back and see with the resources that I have on my farm and with my ability and management skills what I could do," he said. Third, do a market study to make sure there is a need for the...

4 Peanut market looks promising CAPRON—Poor quality peanuts from Argentina and China may boost sales for U.S. peanuts in the European marketplace, according to Russell Schools, chairman of the National Peanut Council's Export Committee. After returning from a trade mission to Europe in mid-May, Schools, who also represented the Virginia Peanut Growers Association, stated low grade peanuts from other countries "should be a plus for us this fall." "The thing we have going for us is quality," he said. "American peanuts go through a series of tests to ensure that nothing but good quality peanuts are going to the consumer." The market for salted, unshelled and candy peanuts is good in Europe, Schools stud. "They prefer U.S. peanuts if they are available at a reasonable price," he said. European officials have already begun to monitor the progress of this year's peanut crop, Schools added. 'They're trying to figure out how the market will be for them," he said. The third annual trade miss...

July, 1987 FB marketing pioneer 'beefed' up program THE PLAINS—John Middleton was responsible for "beefing up" the Virginia Farm Bureau cattle program. The idea for the cattle program began in the late 1960s when officials from Farm Bureau, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Agriculture met to explore the possibilities for implementing such a program. A feasibility study was ordered and shortly afterwards the first shipment of cattle took place in 1969. "We shipped 600 to 700 cattle as part of a pilot program to Michigan," Middleton said. With the success of the program, the Delano praises harvest limits RICHMOND—The recent liberalization of deer harvests in 12 Virginia counties, coupled with new statewide restrictions to protect a declining quail population, should be a boon to grain producers and sportsmen alike, said Robert B.

8 Sodbuster support is urged RICHMOND—The president of Virginia's largest farm organization is encouraging farmers and agricultural organizations statewide to get involved immediately with the 1985 Farm Bill's Sodbuster and Swampbuster programs. Robert B. Delano, president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, which represents 38,000 state farmers, urged the conservation practices after meeting with state officials recently in Richmond. Officials from the state Soil Conservation Service, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service and Division of Soil and Conservation explained Virginia's role in the two programs during a VFBF board meeting. The two programs are part of the Farm Bill's Food Security Act regarding conservation and it gives farmers until Jan. 1,1990, or two years from the initial plan to develop and begin actively applying a conservation plan on highly erodible farmland and precious wetlands. The plan must be fully operational by 1995. 'The practice of farmi...

10 Woman of Year speaks out for agriculture By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor MADISON—For Mildred Hale, being Farm Bureau Woman of the Year is more than just a title—it is an opportunity to speak out for agriculture. In a speech given to the participants in the Statewide Women's Conference in Williamsburg in March, Mrs. Hale told them what agriculture meant to her. "Farming is a way of life to me. It is the most important business in the world—feeding people...We women do a great deed to promote this business. Many of us are there helping with farm chores. Women can have a great impact on national and local government through Farm Bureau working on policy development, resolutions and legislative goals as set by the Farm Bureau." These are not just idle words to Mrs. Hale—she lives them. She assists her husband, William Hale, with their 350-acre dairy farm in Madison County. They milk 102 cows, have 50 calves under six months old and 60 calves above that age, she said. In addition to ...

July, 1987 Eleanor Whinnery Media Specialist A Taste of. VIRGINIA New potatoes are good news for today's health conscious consumers. Once considered a starchy, fattening vegetable, potatoes have repositioned themselves as a health food by simply stating the facts. There's nothing new about the nutrient content of potatoes. It's just that most people have assumed that a food as "soul satisfying" as potatoes must be high in calories. In truth, a 90-calorie potato provides a third of the vitamin C daily requirement, plus contributes to the vitamin B-l, niacin and iron needs. Also potatoes provide carbohydrates which is a most important energy source. Potatoes have been a victim of guilt by association with high calorie toppings. Instead of piling on calories, learn to flavor potatoes the slim way. Make mashed potatoes with skim milk and low-fat margarine. Substitute sour cream or yogurt for mayonnaise when making potato salad. Serve baked potatoes with hot herbed skim milk or chicken b...
