Thehttp://www.wvagriculture.org/<strong>Market</strong> <strong>Bulletin</strong>Gus R. R. Douglass, CommissionerJanet L. L. Fisher, Deputy CommissionerSteve Hannah, Deputy CommissionerVol. 91, No. 10 October 2007Consumer Attitude Change Toward FoodOrigins Causing National MovementBuying local boosts State economic well-beingketing is ever changing, and right now thereis also a consumer attitude change which iscausing a national movement. Consumerswant to know where their food comes frombecause <strong>of</strong> the continuous recalls <strong>of</strong> food frommajor, concentrated processors. <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong>farmers have a tremendous opportunity tomeet this consumer preference to buy locallyproduced fruits, vegetables and processedfoods.Senator Jay Rockefeller (second from left)toured the State Fairgrounds with State FairPresident John Wilson, Marion Shiflet, StateFair Board <strong>of</strong> Directors and CommissionerDouglass. See State Fair story and photos onpages 4-5.WVDA Mission StatementGus’ View . . .I recently received information about aninteresting website called FarmPolicyFacts.org which includes farm and food statisticsthat paint a different picture <strong>of</strong> the agriculturallandscape. I think these statistics areespecially important as we debate futureagriculture policy in the United States Congress.The statistics are new and differentas to who owns the farms and who operatesthe farms (<strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong> ranks number onein the percentage <strong>of</strong> family-owned and operatedfarms (22,000) according to the USDAcensus).According to Bobby Coats, Pr<strong>of</strong>essor andEconomist with the University <strong>of</strong> ArkansasCooperative Extension Service, this is agreat website for anyone who wants tolearn about farm policy in the United Statesand who enjoys statistics. The website <strong>of</strong>fersinformation from a coalition <strong>of</strong> farmersand commodity groups created to educateCongress and Americans about agriculture’scontributions to the economy. Some <strong>of</strong> the“Fact <strong>of</strong> the Day” statistics noted are: 98percent <strong>of</strong> U.S. farms are run by familiesand less than 2 percent are corporatefarms; family farms produce 86 percent <strong>of</strong>America’s food and fiber; U.S. consumersspend just 10 percent <strong>of</strong> their income onfood, which is the lowest percentage in theworld – we have the best bargain here in theworld; and today’s farmer provides food andfiber for 144 people – up from just 19 peoplein 1940.There are a lot <strong>of</strong> things happening inthis state that I sometimes am not aware <strong>of</strong>until there is adversity. Case in point is howwell our vegetable growers were able to dodespite the dry weather. Ingenuity and theuse <strong>of</strong> irrigation on gardens have providedconsumers at the markets a good selection<strong>of</strong> fruits and vegetables.Speaking <strong>of</strong> markets, the science <strong>of</strong> marproducefrom farms. People pay in advanceor at least make an early down payment fortheir slice <strong>of</strong> the farm’s bounty <strong>of</strong> fresh food.Instead <strong>of</strong> going to the marketplace, farmersprovide the produce which can be deliveredor picked up. This is another unique way<strong>of</strong> direct marketing. This type <strong>of</strong> marketingis called community supported agriculture(CSA) and there are about 1,500 or sonationwide.<strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong> needs to take advantage<strong>of</strong> these trends and is very capable <strong>of</strong>supplying the demand. I have had ongoingdiscussions with both <strong>of</strong> our land grantinstitutions to build a cooperative effort toboost our economic well-being and to supplythe needs <strong>of</strong> consumers. I’ll be asking theGovernor and Legislature to provide the <strong>Department</strong>$500,000 in market developmentfunds for the next fiscal year. We wouldlike to divide $300,000 <strong>of</strong> these funds into$75,000 segments to help fund development<strong>of</strong> four new regional year round farmers’markets. We would ask local communities tomatch these funds.In fact, a CNN LifeWire story suggestsfarmers’ markets can help consumers eat a“100-mile diet.” Concerned individuals acrossthe country took a pledge for the entire month<strong>of</strong> September that if food hasn’t been grownwithin 100 miles <strong>of</strong> where they live, they won’tbuy it. I believe we have also seen this surgein local buying as both our year-round andseasonal markets are doing remarkably well.Another recent article from the AssociatedPress mentions another trend in the northeastthat is providing individuals and families theoption <strong>of</strong> receiving a weekly supply <strong>of</strong> fresh continued on page 2The mission <strong>of</strong> the <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong> <strong>Department</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Agriculture</strong> is to protect plant, animal and human health and the state’s food supplythrough a variety <strong>of</strong> scientific and regulatory programs; to provide vision, strategic planning and emergency response for agriculturaland other civil emergencies; to promote industrial safety and protect consumers through educational and regulatory programs;and to foster economic growth by promoting <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong> agriculture and agribusinesses throughout the state and abroad.

Gus’ View . . .continued from page 1The remaining $200,000 would be used forfurther development and enhancement <strong>of</strong>our established markets across the state.Hopefully, we will be successful; as webelieve the time is right for these developments.In fact, along with the Collaborativefor the 21st Century Appalachia’s websitemarketing effort discussed in last month’scolumn, this could be a $300 million opportunityfor the state to benefit from homegrownproducts by providing reasonablestart-up costs.On the environmental front, a federal appealscourt has ruled in Des Moines, Iowa,that farms cannot be sued over the pollutionor odors they omit as long as they haveentered into an agreement with the EnvironmentalProtection Agency (EPA). The U.S.Court <strong>of</strong> Appeals for the District <strong>of</strong> Columbiarejected the arguments <strong>of</strong> environmentalgroups in a 2-1 ruling. The court found thatthe EPA was exercising a valid use <strong>of</strong> theagency’s enforcement discretion by enteringinto agreements with the farms. I considerthis is good news for <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong>’s poultryindustry and feeding operations. To the best<strong>of</strong> my knowledge, all the poultry farms havenutrient management plans in place.I question the development <strong>of</strong> governmentmeeting laws. New York State nowhas a requirement that all meetings mustbe webcast for the public if they fall underthe state’s open meetings law. New YorkGovernor Eliot Spitzer signed an executiveMARKET BULLETIN Subscription Rate ChangeEffective AUGUST 1, 2007, the out-<strong>of</strong>-state <strong>Market</strong> <strong>Bulletin</strong> subscriptioncost increased to $10 per year. A two-year subscription will be $16.If you live out-<strong>of</strong>-state and would like to receive The <strong>Market</strong> <strong>Bulletin</strong>,contact the WVDA Communications Division at 304-558-3708or email marketbulletin@ag.state.wv.usorder requiring state agencies and publicauthorities to come up with plans to broadcastall such meetings on the Internet. Abidingby this order will come at a considerableexpense and probably the development <strong>of</strong>another agency to ensure the requirementsare followed.The July issue <strong>of</strong> the <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong> DeerFarmers Association Newsletter notes theyhad a successful spring. It appears thateveryone had a great fawning season. Inaddition, they held a spring fundraiser thatyielded around $30,000 for the Association.This is another low-key industry inour state that deserves notice and respect.Further information indicates that <strong>West</strong><strong>Virginia</strong> breeding operations are recognizedfor having cervids with the desirable traitsdemanded by the industry. Nationwide it isnoted that the cervid farming industry hasdirect economic impact <strong>of</strong> $893 million annually.October is here and it is a great monthfor folks to be outside enjoying the manyfarms around the state that cater to thepublic. I visited one <strong>of</strong> those farms a fewdays ago. The Tabb family farm in JeffersonCounty is to be commended for takingadvantage <strong>of</strong> the opportunities at hand ashouses appear all around them. They doa tremendous job in farm recreation andeducation, supplying nursery plants andpumpkins, and pick-your-own produce fortheir neighbors. Their corn maze is extremelypopular with the locals.October is also the time when the NationalFFA Convention is held in Indianapolis.Anna Lee and I both plan on attending. Inaddition to my serving as one <strong>of</strong> the judges,it will be a major anniversary for the two <strong>of</strong>us. It was 60 years ago in 1947 that I servedas National FFA President. On October 23,the day after the FFA Convention, Anna Leeand I married in Kansas City, Missouri. Wewill be celebrating our major anniversary withthe FFA, and it will be our first visit to thenew FFA location in Indianapolis.Things have improved here on the farmwith a little rain we received. The meadowsare being mowed to get the weeds<strong>of</strong>f and save the little bit <strong>of</strong> grassthat is left on the drought deficienthayfields. I hope some <strong>of</strong> the rainmade it to your area.Grant Provides Boost for <strong>Market</strong>ing Jefferson County Farm ProductsCommissioner <strong>of</strong><strong>Agriculture</strong> Gus R.Douglass presentedthe Jefferson CountyDevelopment Authority(JCDA) with a SpecialtyCrop grant check <strong>of</strong>$5,000 to help improveand boost trafficon a county websitededicated to promotingagricultural producers inJefferson County.The presentationwas made at Town andCountry Nursery nearKearneysville, which isowned by Del. Bob Tabband his wife Nancy. TheTabbs hosted a farmtour and luncheon thatfeatured all <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong>Grown products for stateCommissioner Douglasspresents Jefferson CountyAgricultural DevelopmentOfficer Kellie Boles a$5,000 check to improve awebsite that promotes JeffersonCounty agriculturalproducers.legislators visiting the panhandle forinterim committee meetings.JCDA Agricultural DevelopmentOfficer Kellie Boles said the SpecialtyCrop Grant would be used to promotea “buy local” campaign, and to “furthermarket, develop and promote specialtycrops in the entire Eastern Panhandle<strong>of</strong> <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong>.”Specialty crops are defined as agriculturalproducts other than traditionalcrops, such as corn or soybeans. Specialtycrops <strong>of</strong>ten include value-addedcomponents in their production ormarketing that provide a better returnon investment for farmers.“We’re looking at diversifying agricultural<strong>of</strong>ferings and direct marketing,”said Boles. “We’re in a unique situationin Jefferson County. We have morepeople moving into the county, whichthreatens farmland, but we have an opportunityto serve that growing popula-tion through direct marketing.”The website allows farmers the opportunityto place information about theirproducts, hours <strong>of</strong> operation, prices andservices, along with links to their ownwebsites, if available. The address is www.jeffersonfarms.org.Bill Grantham, owner <strong>of</strong> Tudor Hall Farm<strong>Market</strong>, said he uses the website “to gatherin new customers and advertise promotions.”He said he hoped increasing thevisibility <strong>of</strong> the site would help him expandthe customer base for his farm, which hasbeen in his family since 1773.He said his family operates a farm standat the farm five days a week, plus does“tailgate” sales at markets in Charles Townand Shepherdstown up to five days a week.“We do a lot <strong>of</strong> local business, but wealso cater to a lot <strong>of</strong> people from D.C.,Maryland and <strong>Virginia</strong> who have secondhomes here or come to visit the area on theweekend,” Grantham said.Page 2The <strong>Market</strong> <strong>Bulletin</strong>

WVDA ISSUES TIPS FOR ASIAN LADY BEETLE CONTROLAlthough this summer’s drought may holddown populations, Asian Lady Beetles (ALB)will undoubtedly begin to appear throughoutthe Mountain State in the next few months,and the <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong> <strong>Department</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Agriculture</strong>(WVDA) is encouraging homeowners tobegin taking action now to protect againstsevere infestations.WVDA entomologist Berry Crutchfield,Ph.D., recommends that all points <strong>of</strong> entryto a house be sealed with caulking, weatherstripping, screens or other material. Concentratearound doors and windows, undereaves, around foundation, attic vents, seamsin siding, or where pipes and wires enter thestructure. Seal interior entry points to individualrooms, concentrating around windows,vents, light fixtures, electrical outlets, etc.These practices are <strong>of</strong>ten easier said thandone, but are the most reliable long-termcontrol methods.In early to mid-October consider treatinglogical entry points on the exterior <strong>of</strong>the home with an insecticide labeled for“structure-invading” insect pests (e.g. BayerAdvanced Home Pest Control, Ortho Bug-B-Gone, Ortho Home Defense, SpectracideBug Stop, Suspend, Tempo), or look for productswith these active ingredients: Bifenthrin,Cyfluthrin, Deltamethrin, Esfenvalerate, orTralomethrin. Follow label directions. Thistreatment works best if performed just beforebeetles arrive.During winter months periodically removeindividual beetles in the living portions<strong>of</strong> the home with a vacuum cleaner. Emptyand dispose <strong>of</strong> vacuum cleaner contentsafter each session, or use a nylon stockingstuffed into the vacuum hose and securedaround the outside with a rubber band toprevent beetles from entering the vacuumcleaner and to minimize unpleasant odor.Place sticky boards or fly paper near selectlights to attract and capture active beetles.Insecticide treatments are <strong>of</strong> little value duringwinter months.Also known as the “Halloween” or “Japanese”lady beetle, the first established population<strong>of</strong> this insect was discovered in Louisianain 1988. Since that time, the beetle hasincreased its range to include most areas<strong>of</strong> the United States and parts <strong>of</strong> southernCanada. It was first reported in <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong>in 1992.Contrary to popular myth, ALB has neverbeen released by WVDA.“Although several states attempted torelease and establish the beetle as a biologicalcontrol agent for fruit and nut treepests, most <strong>of</strong> these release attempts wereconsidered failures and it remains unclearexactly how the beetles entered the country.No such releases have ever been attemptedin <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong>, and their movement herewas part <strong>of</strong> a natural expansion from otherstates,” said Commissioner Douglass.Commissioner Douglass noted that hehas approached the U.S. <strong>Department</strong> <strong>of</strong><strong>Agriculture</strong> about the complaints he has receivedover the years, but little progress hasbeen made in finding a more effective controlmethod for these insects.Gardening TimelineOctober 6.................

According to Forestry<strong>of</strong>ficials, more than 500 acres <strong>of</strong> forestland havebeen scorched by at least 80 separate wildfires,including one that started from a campfire andburned 200 acres in Boone County earlier thismonth.“We always urge caution,” Director/StateForester Randy Dye said, “but this year we'reurging people to be extra cautious with everything,including building campfires, burningdebris and using machinery in or close to thewoods – all these activities can start a wildfireand destroy valuable acres <strong>of</strong> forestland.”Dye cited rainfall deficits and near-droughtconditions as the leading factors in most <strong>of</strong> thepre-season wildfires.“The lack <strong>of</strong> rain this summer and moisturedeficits in many parts <strong>of</strong> the state have usextremely concerned heading into the fall fireseason,” Dye said. “Some <strong>of</strong> our long-time employeessay this is perhaps the driest the woodshave been in the past 20 years. Please, everyone,be careful!” Dye emphasized.In recent years, ample rainfall has kept thenumber <strong>of</strong> forest fires and acres burned reasonablylow. The last significant forest fire seasonwas fall <strong>of</strong> 2001, when approximately 80,000acres caught fire.Dye reminded residents that beginning Oct.1, the <strong>of</strong>ficial start <strong>of</strong> the fall forest fire season,outdoor burning is prohibited between the hours<strong>of</strong> 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. From Oct. 1 through Dec.31, outdoor burning is legal only between thehours <strong>of</strong> 4 p.m. and 7 a.m.For more information about the fall forestfire season, <strong>West</strong> <strong>Virginia</strong> forest fire laws, andfire danger for your area, visit the Division <strong>of</strong>Forestry’s website at www.wvforestry.com.The <strong>Market</strong> <strong>Bulletin</strong> Page 11
