Tobacco Intentions.

first_imgBy Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaU.S. tobacco companies recently announced they will buy less tobacco in 2003 than they did in 2002. But Georgia farmers will probably plant more of the crop, says a University of Georgia expert.The companies said they intend to buy 283.3 million pounds of tobacco in 2003, around 26.6 million pounds, or 9.4 percent, less than their 2002 intention.Cigarette makers are required to report each year to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture how much flue-cured tobacco they intend to buy from U.S. auction markets and producers.Less Quota?The intentions could reduce the U.S. tobacco quota, the amount of tobacco that farmers can grow and get government support prices for, by as much as 6 percent to 9 percent, said J. Michael Moore, a tobacco agronomist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.The USDA includes the companies’ buying intentions in a formula that calculates the U.S. tobacco quota each year. The formula also considers the U.S. export average over three years and the reserve supply of the Flue-Cured Tobacco Cooperative, the farmer-owned co-op that runs the federal tobacco program.The formulas and business of tobacco can get complicated, Moore said. But the announcement doesn’t necessarily mean less tobacco in Georgia next year. In fact, due to poor growing conditions in 2002, tobacco acreage could increase in Georgia in 2003.Missed QuotaDrought, insects and disease devastated the 2002 Georgia tobacco crop. So Georgia farmers didn’t grow all the quota pounds they were allowed to grow in 2002.Georgia growers could have sold 60.7 million pounds in 2002. But they were only able to grow and sell 52.4 million pounds, or 86 percent of their quota, Moore said. Under the current tobacco program, Georgia farmers could make up the 14 percent difference with the 2003 crop.”Without the underproduction in 2002, growers would be looking at a smaller crop next year,” he said.Georgia farmers planted about 28,000 acres of tobacco in 2002. Their gross tobacco farm-gate income was $96.5 million, about $15 million less than in 2001. Growers got about $1.84 per pound, or about 2 cents below the 2001 average.Catch up Quota”Because growers in Georgia will be trying to play catch-up again this year, they will be producing a slightly larger effective quota in 2003 than in 2002,” he said. But how much larger isn’t certain.As part of the tobacco quota formula, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Ann Veneman has the statutory discretion to raise or lower the quota by as much as 3 percent.The future of the federal tobacco program is in question, Moore said. Industry officials are debating a quota buyout, which would end the program. But Moore said he doesn’t see this happening before the 2003 crop is planted.Over the past two years, growers have increasingly contracted and sold directly to tobacco companies and bypassed the traditional tobacco auctions. This calls for adjustments in how tobacco is handled in the U.S. market.”It’s pretty negative out there now,” Moore said. “Nobody knows for sure where the industry is going.”last_img read more

Gold medal plants

first_imgEach year, five plants that grow well in Georgia have the chance to win gold. And during this first year of the new decade, the winners are spectacular.This year’s Georgia Gold Medal winners have all proven their worth and are ready to add beauty to landscapes across the state.The 2010 winners, by category, are: summer annual – Diamond Frost Euphorbia; herbaceous perennial – Butterfly Weed; evergreen groundcover – Angelina Stonecrop; evergreen shrub – Limelight hydrangea; and deciduous tree – Ogon Dawn Redwood.Selection processEach year an elite group of green industry and academic professionals from across Georgia select outstanding ornamental plants in five categories, said University of Georgia Cooperative Extension horticulturist Gary Wade. But only one plant in each category can earn the plant selection committee’s coveted gold medal.The committee is made up of nurserymen, flower growers, botanists, landscape designers, garden center managers, Master Gardeners and University of Georgia horticulturists. First presented in 1993, the awards promote the production, sale and use of superior landscape plants.“The nominees are judged on a strict list of criteria including pest tolerance, ease of maintenance, survivability, seasonal interest and availability,” Wade said. “The list of nominees is long and the selection process is tedious, but in the end, all on the committee agree that the plants chosen are deserving of their gold medal designation.” 2010 winnersThe 2010 Gold Medal plants are all worthy of their distinguished titles. Diamond Frost Euphorbia is an easy-to-grow annual that blooms non-stop from spring until fall frost.Butterfly Weed is a native herbaceous perennial that attracts butterflies like magnets with its florescent orange blooms.Angelina Stonecrop sedum is a tough-as-nails groundcover with golden yellow foliage and bright orange summer flowers.Limelight hydrangea, the shrub winner, will light up a neighborhood with its large chartreuse panicles on strong upright stems.Last but not least, Ogon Dawn Redwood, the 2010 tree selection, has unique golden foliage that glows in the summer sun and is the perfect choice for pond edges, parks and large public spaces.To learn more about the Georgia Gold Medal program, visit read more

Norwegian Pension Fund Divests From 73 Companies
