Upcoming Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Food Safety Build Your Own Manual Training

Hello everyone. We have just recently received several inquiries regarding small to medium sized growers need food safety training as a result of their buyers now requiring a plan and perhaps even a third party audit. Our next program will be September 11th in Sarasota County. Please let your growers know about this opportunity. Thanks.

Dotted Duckweed

I am working on a status re-assessment of Landoltia punctata (dotted duckweed) and was looking for some input on the ecological impacts of the species. Specifically, we need to know:

1. If the species causes longterm alterations in ecosystem processes 

2. If threatened/endangered species are impacted

3. If native vegetation is displaced

4. If community structure is altered

5. If it hybridizes

6. If invaded zones are >15% covered.


If you have information regarding this plant, please send me your answers as yes, no, or likely.

News & Resources

USDA Now Providing Local & Regional Market News Data
USDA Market News has created a new series of market reports on locally or regionally produced agricultural products, available on the Local & Regional Food Marketing Information Web page. Three categories are now online: Farmers Markets reports, Farmers Auctions reports, and Direct to Consumer reports. USDA Market News is also developing Farm-to-School, Food Hub, and Retail reports.

Report Details Business Opportunities Arising from Cover Crops
A report from the National Wildlife Federation, The Growing Business of Cover Crops, details new business opportunities arising from a resurgence in use of cover crops. As more farmers begin using cover crops, they will need support businesses to provide them with services such as crop advising, seed production and sales, planting, and livestock grazing. Cover crop entrepreneurs can both make a living and contribute to the health of local economies.

Food Safety Video Series Explains Good Agricultural Practices
The Carolina Farm Stewardship Association has launched a series of short videos to supplement its manual on Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). This video series documents real-world examples of how small, diversified farms can meet GAP certification requirements. The series of eight online videos addresses the audit process, traceability, worker health and hygiene, water, animals, equipment, and more.

National Agritourism Professionals Association Organizes
The National Agritourism Professionals Association (NAPA) has held an organizational summit to pass the organization's charter and bylaws, discuss leadership and membership requirements, and plan a 2015 conference. NAPA will provide industry resources and support to help agritourism businesses work through regulatory and policy challenges. Additionally, NAPA will network opportunities for agritourism professionals and service providers, farmers, and farm-direct marketers in the promotion of their agritourism activities.

Video Helps Hmong Farmers Work with USDA
National Hmong American Farmers (NHAF) has released a new video in which farmer May Vu and NHAF give step-by-step instructions about how Hmong farmers can work with the USDA and benefit from its farm program services. The 10-minute video is available online in Hmong (with English subtitles).

Online Course on Transitioning to Organic Offered by Iowa State University
On August 26, Iowa State University is beginning a 16-week online course for producers interested in learning about transitioning into organic farming or improving their existing organic operations. "Organic Agriculture Theory and Practice" will be offered weekly on Tuesday evenings through December 9. Lessons will include weed management, nutrient management, pest management, and markets for organic grain, vegetable, and fruit crops.

The Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection invites proposals for projects that will increase the demand for and supply of locally produced foods in Wisconsin.
Pre-proposals are due by December 1, 2014.

Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers Policy Research Center
USDA has announced $400,000 in funding to establish the Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers Policy Research Center at an 1890 Land-Grant college or university.

News & Info Brief

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service is updating portions of the state’s Forest Action Plan related to the USDA Forest Legacy Program and is inviting citizens and stakeholders to get involved. The Florida Forest Service’s participation in the Forest Legacy Program compliments its Rural and Family Lands Protection Program by helping to protect and conserve important forest areas through voluntary conservation easements and fee simple purchases.

“The protection and conservation of forests in Florida is vital,” said Jim Karels, State Forester. “Florida’s forests provide countless benefits including forest products, job opportunities, recreational opportunities, and the protection of water quality and wildlife habitat.”

Currently, the Florida Forest Service is partnering with Florida State University’s Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) to update and identify priority forestlands that qualify as Forest Legacy areas eligible for federal funding from the Forest Legacy Program.

In an effort to secure broad support for the Forest Legacy Program in Florida and to seek further input from citizens and stakeholders on potential criteria and focus areas, the Florida Forest Service and FNAI will hold three Public Participation Workshops around the state. Below are the Forest Legacy workshop details:

·         KISSIMMEE, FL

Thursday, August 7, 2014, 6:00 pm- 8:00 pm (EST): Eyster Auditorium, 3125 Conner Blvd., Tallahassee, FL 32311

Thursday, August 12, 2014, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm (EST): 1911 Southwest 34 Street, Gainesville, FL 32608

Landowner participation in the program, including the sale of lands and interests in lands, is entirely voluntary. More information about the Forest Legacy Program here, or call the Forest Legacy Program Coordinator at (850) 681-5816.

The Florida Forest Service manages more than one million acres of public forest land while protecting 26 million acres of homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfire.
