Commissioner Dr. Kathleen Toomey got a first-hand look at the challenges Georgia's agriculture industry faces keeping workers safe and getting crops to market in the age of COVID-19.
The Federal-State Inspection Service in Albany hires some 1,000 temporary workers to staff 130 peanut buying points around the state every fall, where

Toomey discussed with FSIS and the owners of the Moultrie buying point what to do if an employee becomes infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, and how to prevent further spread among other workers.

Beware of unsolicited seed mailings
Do not plant, throw away or flush foreign seeds

By Market Bulletin staff
The Georgia Department of Agriculture's Seed Lab in Tifton has analyzed various packages of seeds shipped unsolicited to Georgians from China in recent weeks and found a mix of ornamental flower and vegetable species. Despite common varieties such as squash and zinnia contained in those packets, Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black is advising against sowing the

seeds, as the plants may contain diseases that could harm other plants and crops.
"Thankfully, our seed lab has not found anything nefarious in the mysterious packets so far, but that does not mean we should let our guard down," Black said. "I urge anyone who receives a package that they do not remember ordering to treat it with care and caution. And most importantly, do not plant, throw away or flush the seeds."
People in 22 states have reported re-

ceiving mysterious packages of seeds that appeared to have originated from China. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is working with the Department of Homeland Security's Customs and Border Protection and other state and federal agencies to investigate the packages.
The USDA is currently collecting seed packages to test the contents to determine if they are of concern to agriculture or the

environment. The USDA is asking anyone in Georgia
who receives unsolicited seed packets to
package them and mail them to:

MOULTRIE Ordinarily a mid-season preview of things

to come at the Sunbelt Agricultural Expo in October, this

year's Field Day on the Darrell Williams Research Farm

was the first and last chance growers, researchers and ven-

dors will have to meet eye-to-eye and talk agriculture at

Spence Field in 2020.

On July 24 the day after a modified field day offered

a self-guided driving tour of 33 stops Sunbelt officials

announced the cancellation of the 43rd annual Expo due

to concerns about the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus

that causes COVID-19.

"Unfortunately, we simply cannot safely blend net-

working, commerce and education while representing the

rich history of the Sunbelt Ag Expo," the Expo's board of directors announced in a press release.
Aspects of the show will go on virtually via social media. The 2020 Southeastern Farmer of the Year will be

Georgie's Drive Thru Warthen
Hello! I'm Georgie, the Georgia Grown mascot. I travel the state of Georgia promoting our No. 1 industry agriculture! While I was traveling through Warthen in Washington County one day, I saw a sign that said, "Oldest Jail in Georgia." Back when Washington County stretched from Glennville almost to Lexington, Warthen was the county seat. The first county jail was built there with one room and no air conditioning. One night in 1807, Aaron Burr stayed there not by choice. He had led a full life by the time he got there. He served as vice president during Thomas Jefferson's first presidential term. Then he killed Alexander Hamilton, the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, in a duel. Burr left town after the fight, finding refuge at the home of a supporter on St. Simons Island. After murder charges were dropped, he was rumored to be starting his own country in Mississippi. His former boss, Thomas Jefferson, sent soldiers to Natchez to fetch him. After the group rounded him up, they made it to Warthen just before dark one night and locked Burr inside. He was sent to Virginia to stand trial. After he was found not guilty of treason for the fourth time, he decided to leave Washington, never to be heard from again.

New farmer is an example of self-taught self-sufficiency
Dominic Rasnick, 21, is a beginning farmer in Meriwether County. A Mayan Indian born in Guatemala, Dominic was adopted as a baby and has lived in Georgia ever since. He's currently enrolled full-time in the welding and carpentry program at West Georgia Technical College but hopes to become a full-time farmer.
"I have four types of tomatoes, corn, okra, radish, cowpeas, squash, carrots, four types of peppers, cucumbers that I pickled, and beets. I also am growing gourds," he said. "I love to be self-sufficient and not have to go to the store, especially during the pandemic. Next year I'll try a wheat crop to make my own bread."
Rasnick is seeking advice from experienced wheat farmers in Georgia. If you have suggestions for him, let us know and we'll connect you.

Sunbelt Field Day: Research goes on

Continued From Page 1
from experts about new technologies and techniques to inform their planting decisions for upcoming growing seasons.
This year attendees were invited to remain in their vehicles and view videos pre-recorded for each stop. Exhibitors were on-hand to entertain questions or discuss the content of each video.
"We really wanted to preserve the in-person aspect of Field Day while maintaining the safety protocols with COVID-19, so we dreamed up the idea of having a drive-thru experience, kind of like Callaway Gardens when you go to see the (Christmas) lights," Blalock said.
The idea was a hit. "I think we might be onto something here," Blalock said as a line of pickup trucks most with multiple occupants rolled through the main gate, picking up bags filled with brochures, giveaways, water and snacks for the ride. "We're pleasantly surprised to see the steady stream of vehicles coming through. I think the farmers just want to get out. There's so much staying home you can do."
Getting out and learning
Fredando "Farmer Fredo" Jackson, executive director of Flint River Fresh, a community grower in Albany, was the first exhibitor on deck at Field Day with a demonstration of cover crops at the Flint River Fresh Backyard Garden.
Just as they do on a large scale with crops like cotton and peanuts, cover crops can help the backyard gardener rejuvenate soil between plantings, break pest cycles and control dis-

ease and weeds. Jackson suggested five crops good for small-scale growers using residential lawnmowers or walk-behind tillers to mow down cover crops and turn them back into the soil: Buckwheat, a fast-growing pollinator plant that suppresses weeds by outpacing them; Sunn hemp, a nitrogen-fixing a legume unrelated to industrial hemp; Browntop millet, a grain that creates a thick vegetation mat; Iron Clay Peas, another fast-growing legume that fixes nitrogen; and Sorghum Sudan Grass.
Cover crops were the topic of discussion again at Stop 18, sponsored by the Georgia Association of Conservation Districts. Brian Ponder, a vice president of the association and a cotton grower in Tift County, has worked with cover crops since 1993.
"The benefits are to create organic material in your soil. Cover crops also increase filtration of water whether it be irrigation or rainfall," Ponder said. "It just creates a giant sponge on your land."
Without the soil-holding benefits of cover crops like rye, Ponder said his equipment, fuel and personnel costs would rise. He would have to run tractors in the winter to move dirt back into place that washed away.
University of Georgia Weed Scientist Stanley Culpepper and his research team were setting up plastic-covered tunnels in a field of soybeans to test the drift potential of dicamba formulations.
Culpepper said a recent survey of 1,800 cotton growers in Georgia ranked Palmer amaranth, or pigweed, as the most problematic pest in all of Georgia agriculture. Annually he conducts research on nine acres at the Sunbelt

farm, focusing primarily on cotton, a crop worth $900 million in Georgia. Dicamba and 2,4-D herbicides are effective at controlling the pigweed in cotton and soybeans throughout the Southeast and Midsouth, but improper use can lead to extensive damage to neighboring crops and plants.
In June, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit blocked use of three products containing dicamba due to drift concerns. A co-author with the Georgia Department of Agriculture of the "Using Pesticides Wisely" program which is credited with reducing complaints of pesticide drift in Georgia Culpepper said research is key to understanding the conditions that lead to drift and educating growers on proper application of the product.
The question on everyone's mind at Field Day was whether the dicamba products affected the Court's decision would be reinstated, he said. "I'm an optimist," he answered,

adding that research is key to helping growers learn proper application methods.
Each tunnel in his latest research project straddles two rows of soybeans, which are more sensitive to drift damage than cotton. When covered with plastic, the tunnels simulate extreme heat of up to 120 degrees in the growing fields. Researchers then treat two greenhouse flats of soil with dicamba off-site and place those flats under the tunnels for 48 hours. Three to five days later, they'll evaluate the soybeans under the tunnel for signs of injury such as leaf-cupping, an indication that the heat under the tunnel lifted the dicamba from the soil and allowed it to drift.
"If we can get information on which tank mixtures are potentially more volatile or which formulations are more volatile, we can move away from those and move to a more friendly product to help our growers meet their goal," Culpepper said.
