Hundreds of Georgians flocked to Athens on May 15 to celebrate a special birthday: the 100th of the Smith-Lever Act and Cooperative Extension. Beverly Sparks, associate dean for Extension for the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, said the Smith-Lever Act is considered by many to be one of the most far-reaching pieces of legislation to help American agriculture thrive. “This year has given us pause to think about who Hoke Smith was and how he has left a legacy that has not just lasted, but has progressed over a century,” she said. “Tonight we celebrate that vision and innovation as we plan for our next 100 years in Cooperative Extension.” Smith was an attorney in Atlanta who passed the Bar at just 17, Sparks said. He was the owner and publisher of the former Atlanta Journal and served the state both as governor and then as senator. It was as senator that he joined South Carolina’s Sen. A.F. Lever to sign the act creating the Cooperative Extension Service. Prior to the formal creation of Extension, states including Georgia participated in Boys’ Corn Clubs, where young men were invited to “make the best showing in corn culture.” In Georgia, George Claude Adams began the first Corn Club in Newton County in 1904, according to the 2008 book Georgia 4-H: Historic Past, Dynamic Future. Universities, including UGA, got involved in the demonstration work associated with corn clubs. Shortly thereafter, J. Phil See 100, page 12

Pick-your-own strawberries gaining popularity in Georgia By Dallas Duncan Strawberries are an essential part of spring meals, and many Georgia farms take pride in offering pick-your-own berry opportunities for their customers. “The two varieties that we grow here on our farm are Chandler and Camarosa. You also see a lot of Sweet Charlies and Festivals,” said Jake Carter, president of Southern Belle Farm in McDonough, Ga. Soil Scientist Kevin Smith grows the same two types at TroupCorn in Dublin, Ga. “The Chandler, being a smaller, sweeter berry with limited shelf life, that works great for our [you]-pick customers,” Smith said. “The Camarosa is a larger berry, not as sweet as the Chandler, but has an extended shelf life and works great with our pre-pick customers.” In addition to the Camarosa, Jaemor Farms

in Alto, Ga., is one of the only Southeastern farms to grow the Albion variety, which thrives well in the northeast Georgia climate. “It’s a California-type berry, real conical shaped, whereas a Camarosa or Chandler is more scalloped. These look like ice cream cones. It’s a little bit firmer textured berry,” owner Drew Echols said. “[Customers] tend to kind of eat with their eyes and their nose and this berry does that for you. It’s tasty, it smells good and it’s beautiful.” This is the fifth year strawberries have been grown at Jaemor, Echols said. “There were a lot of customers asking, ‘Why don’t you grow strawberries?’” he said. “We’re more geared toward production than agritourism or entertainment, so we decided hey, we’ll plant it.” Caeden Stancil celebrates his birthday with mom Abby They planted 3.5 acres and sold them all.

GEORGIA GROWN PROFILE: Stripling’s General Store

Published by the Ga. Department of Agriculture Gary W. Black, Commissioner

Mail to:

Committed to quality Georgia meat products for a half-century By Maggie Dudacek, summer intern For more than 50 years, Stripling’s has perfected the art of processing sausage. It’s “Hot Hog” country sausage put Stripling’s name on the map as part of Sausage Kitchen, and now the business is a fullfledged grocery store that offers specialty jams, pickles and sauces. Stripling’s General Store recently joined Georgia Grown and is proud to be a part of an organization that supports Georgia businesses. Ashley Goss, the marketing manager who has seen the birth, growth and everything in between, believes that Georgia Grown will help Stripling’s find new business opportunities through marketing, promotion and endorsements. “We … feel an endorsement from Georgia Grown will help in promoting our products as quality driven,” Goss said. “We are very proud of the fact that we are dedicated to consistent, quality products.”

Out of all of the benefits that Georgia Grown has to offer, Stripling’s is most excited about the network opportunities with other Georgia Grown companies. This new community will assist with questions and feedback, but most importantly, encouragement. By participating in events and donating their products whenever possible, Stripling’s supports the Department’s biggest marketing program. Through displays featuring the Georgia Grown logo, the business helps promote the project by encouraging other Georgia-based businesses and consumers to sponsor the program. With more than 300,000 pounds of sausage sold each year, Stripling’s production has grown, but its process, flavor and quality has remained the same for decades, Goss said. With no additional fillers or artificial flavors, customers are provided with high-quality products, while Stripling’s General Store preserves both the history and tradition of the business at its facilities in Cordele, Moultrie and Watkinsville, Ga.

GUEST COLUMN: Fire Adapted Communities – a

commonsense approach to reducing risk of wildfire Wildfires are events that we all assume will happen somewhere else and not in our neck of the woods, but the fires that have been burning in California lately can and do happen right here in Georgia. Maybe not as spectacular, but actually more frequently than out there. A wildfire doesn’t have to be a major event like we see on TV to have an impact on our lives, but a RILEY small one that destroys our home, our barn or our equipment shed is just as tragic to our families and community as the ones that destroy whole subdivisions out West. TV coverage about wildfires shows hundreds of homes destroyed in a matter of hours when a wildfire storm rolls through, but what we don’t see are the farms and ranches that the fires also burn and destroy as they make their way across the land. Losses due to wildfire on farms and ranches can be staggering because of the high value of the equipment, livestock, crops, pastures, timber, water systems and infrastructure. If any of these parts of our farms are suddenly taken away by a wildfire, our lives and our children’s futures will never be the same. It’s easy to replace a home with insurance, but most parts of our farms are irreplaceable and a wildfire can quickly destroy the things that we and our ancestors have worked for generations to build. There are ways we can minimize the risk of wildfire by using a few commonsense ideas that are proven to work: • Prescribed burning is one of the most effective tools that we can use to minimize the risk of fire on our land. If the fuel is burned under controlled conditions, then the chance of a destructive wildfire is greatly reduced. • Defensible space is one of the main components of the Firewise Communities program that is used

all across the country to educate the public as to the risks of wildfire. Defensible space is simply a 30-foot space around buildings where combustible material is removed, so if a grass fire approaches your hay barn or equipment shed, the fire can be stopped with a garden hose or will go out on its own. • Ready-Set-Go is an evacuation plan that gives people a plan for what to do when a wildfire approaches. Good planning before a threat of wildfire can prevent tragic results afterward. Prescribed burning, defensible space and ReadySet-Go are only three of the components of a national program called Fire Adapted Communities that is under development in Towns County, along with seven other pilot communities, all of which are west of the Mississippi. The purpose of the program is to educate the public and first responders to the risk of wildfire and develop plans for what to do when one approaches. The end result of the Fire Adapted Communities project is to help make the places where we live and work safer by reducing the risk of a destructive wildfire. A Fire Adapted Community can be a county, a subdivision or a family farm where “the population understands the threat posed by wildfires and takes the personal actions necessary to help minimize the risk.” Frank Riley is the executive director of the Chestatee/ Chattahoochee RC&D Council and a professional forester and farmer. Chestatee/Chattahoochee RC&D develops and administers projects and grants intended to improve the environment and economic development in northeast Georgia’s 13 counties. Riley is a 15-year veteran volunteer firefighter and first responder with Towns County Fire Rescue and is the coordinator of the Town County Fire Safety Education Group that developed the highly successful Towns County Firewise program and Towns County Fire Adapted Communities pilot project.

GUEST COLUMN: Licensing and certification required for pest management professionals The Department is responsible for pest management licensing and the state commercial certification program for pest management professionals. The Department administers the program through the Structural Pest Control Section of the Plant Industry Division. Licensing in the state of Georgia is mandated by the Georgia StrucLASTINGER tural Pest Control Act. Persons required to secure a license in Georgia are those who advertise to provide pest management services, solicit business or receive a fee for performing these services. Anyone who applies a pesticide and receives a fee is required to hold a license. There are three categories of pest control licenses. All individuals must meet required training and qualifications to take the examinations. Once the individual passes the examination, he or she may apply for a license that must be renewed every two years. All company license holders in pest control are required to have liability insurance. A Department-issued credential is required for all persons engaged in the supervision, application or use of any pesticide that is registered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Certification categories include household pest control, wood-destroying organisms and fumigation. Anyone desiring a pest control credential must be qualified to take the examination and pass the state examination for the category of certification. Continuing education credits are required to maintain a certification. Georgia consumers are encouraged to confirm proper

licensing when hiring a pest control company by verifying licensing status on the licensing website, asking the pest management technician to show his or her state-issued pest control credential or calling the Department. In response to the Department’s strategic plan and a specific request from the Georgia Structural Pest Control Commission, the Structural Pest Control Section recently launched a new webpage to enhance outreach on unlicensed operators, including a reporting form for consumers and pest control operators. The form captures the minimum information needed for the Department to take action. In addition to the new webpage and reporting form, the Structural Pest section plans to provide outreach to Georgia consumers at summer events such as the Georgia Grown Farmers Showcases. These outreach efforts will focus on the importance of hiring a licensed professional to effectively manage pests and provide consumer information about protecting their home from termites. I announced the enhanced effort at the May 13 commission meeting in Atlanta and noted that the new resources will improve the efficiency of reporting unlicensed operators and the Department’s enforcement response.               Derrick Lastinger is the director of the Department’s Structural Pest Control Section. He can be reached at For questions about obtaining a pest control license or to verify a license, please call 404-656-3641.

agriCULTURE Letter from the editor

There exist in this world two creatures that I ponder why Noah let on the ark. The first is spiders – I know they’re good for all kinds of things, but they give me the heebie jeebies – and the second is the sworn enemy of everyone in the South: the mosquito. I’m assuming y’all are familiar with these little buggers. They appear out of nowhere, buzzing lightly in your ear. You have to tune in to hear the whine. You realize what it is and raise your hand to squish it, and at the exact moment your lifted palm is coming down … the mosquito zooms off into the stratosphere and you slap yourself in the face. Meanwhile, as you massage the mark you just inflicted upon yourself, the mosquito makes a stealthy return and starts to, as Dracula says, “suck your blood.” I find mosquitoes to be annoying. But other than that, they actually can transmit some pretty serious diseases, including West Nile virus and Eastern equine encephalitis. Oh, and malaria, but thankfully we don’t have that in the States much. In case you’re not familiar with the aforementioned diseases, here’s a little synopsis courtesy of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: • Eastern equine encephalitis can cause high fever, chills, vomiting and neurological symptoms such as seizures or comas. It’s one of the most severe mosquito-transmitted diseases in the US and leaves survivors with significant brain damage. • Most people who contract West Nile do not display any symptoms, but for those that do, West Nile causes body aches and joint pains. In less than 1 percent of cases, West Nile can lead to encephalitis or meningitis, which are swelling of the brain and surrounding tissues. • Malaria, which was eliminated from the US in the 1950s, causes flu-like symptoms. The cases diagnosed in the US today are almost always travelers returning from overseas, where the disease is more common and has a higher mortality rate. The CDC recommends pretty basic prevention methods from contracting these diseases – i.e., wear mosquito repellant and clothing to keep them from biting you in the first place. The best way to keep mosquitoes from invading your sunny May afternoon is to make sure there’s nowhere in your yard or farm where mosquitoes might be tempted to breed. Take tires, for instance. As the ever-eloquent Arty Schronce puts it, “A scientist or an inventor would have to think hard and spend a lot of money to come up with a better mosquito incubator than a used tire.” Used tires, along with buckets and similar receptacles that can hold stagnant water, are favorite breeding spots for the South’s least-favorite disease vector. And if these receptacles are dark colored, they retain heat, so the breeding environment gets warm earlier and stays warm longer. My parents recently filled in their little pond in the backyard because it was like spring break at Panama City Beach … just for mosquitoes instead of college kids. It’s advisable from a public health standpoint, as well as “for the sake of your sanity and so you don’t spend the next six months smelling like citronella candles,” to do the same with any such items you might find yourself in possession of. But let’s say you’re like me and you like to reuse things and be creative. Or, you’ve got a tire swing your kids are fond of and you don’t want to get rid of it just for a few ‘skeeters. Let us turn to the expert on such matters: Pinterest. Anything that can hold stagnant water can also hold soil and plants. Your rusty old wheelbarrow will make a wonderful planter for pansies, herbs and vegetables. I’m assuming the pond in Mom and Daddy’s backyard is going to be landscaped into some glorious split-level garden teeming with blossoms by the time I come home this weekend (hint, hint!). As for the tire swing, poke a couple of holes in the bottom of it so the water will drain out! Dallas Duncan is the editor of the Market Bulletin.

Foodservice staff, product labels best sources of allergen information By Dallas Duncan Approximately 30,000 Americans visit the emergency room, and more than 150 die, each year due to allergic reactions to food, according to the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network. And there’s no cure, according to the US Food and Drug Administration website. The best thing consumers can do is avoid products that contain the food allergens they have reactions to. That’s where product labeling comes in, said Patricia Batten, manufactured food program associate for the Department’s Food Safety Division. “You’ve got to list your ingredients and if any ingredient is made up of sub-ingredients, you have to list it,” Batten said. “I always tell folks, lay your ingredients on the table. … If the allergens are spelled out in the ingredient statement, you do not have to put an allergen statement.” Take butter, for example. Butter contains milk, so in the ingredient statement, a manufacturer could say, “butter [cream, milk, natural flavoring]” and eliminate the need to have a separate statement on the label saying the product contains milk, she said. Dairy is one of several food allergens, said Jessica Badour, recall outreach specialist for the Food Safety Division. The others are eggs, shellfish, fish, wheat, peanuts, soybeans, sulfites and tree nuts, including chestnuts, brazil nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, cashews and pine nuts. Some food dyes can also cause allergic reactions. Consumers can also be intolerant to foods instead of allergic. Food intolerance refers to an abnormal response to a food or additive, such as digestive problems after eating dairy, according to the FDA. A food allergy, on the other hand, occurs when the body produces a specific immunoglobulin – a protein the immune system uses to identify foreign objects, such as viruses – to a food. Once the food is eaten and binds with this protein, it starts an allergic reaction. If a company does not declare an allergen, the best thing it can do is recall the product, Batten said. “That’s very costly. Years back, Frito-Lay had made some Grandma’s Cookies Chocolate Chip. They forgot to put eggs in the label. They recalled 1.2 million cookies and they just threw them in the landfill,” she said. Badour said recalls can come through in three ways. Companies realize they mislabeled, a consumer calls to complain of a potential mislabeling or inspectors might see possible cross-contamination risks during a facility or process inspection. Some labels will point out that a product is produced in a facility that could cause cross-contamination with allergens, even if a product itself does not contain any. “That statement is really saying that I’m listing all my allergens here, but I may also process something with nuts. There might be traces,” Batten said. When it comes to eating out, restaurant menus do not typically declare allergens. That means it’s up to the foodservice staff to know what goes in the food and be able to relay that to customers at risk for allergic reactions. “Due to the serious nature of food allergies, the current Georgia Food Service Rules and Regulations … requires that the person in charge must demonstrate knowledge of the foods that have been identified as major food allergens and be familiar with the symptoms,” said Chris Rustin, director of the Georgia Department of Public Health Environmental Health Section. Symptoms of a food allergy include allergic reactions, anaphylaxis and even death, he said. It’s also important for foodservice staff to be aware of food allergens, which could be a matter of mortality for some customers. Rustin added that another step foodservice establishments must take is to clean and sanitize equipment, surfaces and utensils that come into contact with raw animal protein allergens, such as shellfish, before being used for other foods to prevent the “inadvertent introduction of an allergen into a product that the allergen was not intended to be added as an ingredient.” “With increased knowledge and understanding … food employees are better suited to inform customers about foods containing a major food allergen to reduce the likelihood of exposure,” Rustin said.




Butterflyweed – Attractive in more ways than one Butterflyweed (Asclepias tuberosa) is one of our most beautiful and unmistakable native flowers. Commonly found along roadsides, in meadows and hedgerows, its orange flowers can catch your eye even when you are barreling down the interstate. Those flowers also attract the attention of butterflies that land on them to feed on their nectar. Orange is a favorite color of butterflies, and the flat clusters of butterflyweed flowers make perfect landing pads for the insects. Because it is a butterfly magnet, butterflyweed is a perfect choice for a gardener who wants to lure some of these winged beauties. It is ideal for a school garden or nature trail. Students will never forget it if they see it in bloom, and they may get to witness part of the life cycle of one of the world’s most interesting butterflies: the monarch. Monarchs lay their eggs on butterflyweed and other milkweeds and the caterpillars feed on the leaves. If you see the distinctive monarch caterpillars striped with white, black and yellow on your butterflyweed, do not pick them off. They are not going to kill the plant. Let them live and you will soon be rewarded with black and rusty orange monarchs fluttering all over your garden. A plant that thrives unaided on the roadside or in way places is bound to be durable and drought-tolerant, desirable traits in almost any flower. Butterflyweed’s hearty constitution and its beauty are why more nurseries are propagating and selling it along with their other perennial flowers.

Although you may be tempted, there are several good reasons you should not even attempt to dig up butterflyweed from the wild. The plant has a long, tuberous root that, if damaged, greatly decreases the plant’s chances of survival. You would be taking something that doesn’t belong to you off public or private property, and, depending on the traffic and the location, you or your vehicle could be hit by another vehicle. Buying a butterflyweed is easier, safer and better than digging one up from along the road. Leave roadside flowers for everyone to enjoy.  Don’t let butterflyweed’s name concern you. Unfortunately, our forebears tacked “weed” onto the name of many native plants. Butterflyweed is an ideal and well-behaved flower that takes readily to cultivation and fits into the most sophisticated garden. The orange of the butterflyweed harmonizes with warm colors and provides a dynamic complement with cool colors. Pair it with daylilies, purple coneflower, gaillardia, clasping heliotrope, coreopsis, bearded iris, Adam’s needle yucca, veronica, amsonia, achillea, spigelia, Jerusalem sage and stokesia. Butterflyweed likes well-drained soil and full to partial sun. It will thrive in large terra cotta containers that are deep enough to accommodate its tuberous root. Due to its large root, once butterflyweed is planted, it likes to be left alone. Arty Schronce is the Department’s resident gardening expert. He is a lifelong gardener and a horticulture graduate of North Carolina State University who encourages everyone to learn more about the wide array of perennials, annuals, vegetables, herbs, trees and shrubs that we can grow by visiting a Georgia nursery or garden center.


No-cook refrigerator pickles Editor’s Note: If the pickling process seems overwhelming, our home economist might have the perfect recipe for you! These pickles don’t require any cooking or canning, and they make four to five half-pint jars – perfect for summer picnics and housewarming gifts. Note that peeling the cucumbers is optional if you use Kirby or pickling varieties. Ingredients: 2 pounds cucumbers, peeled and cut half-inch thick* 2 medium Vidalia Onions, sliced and cut in half to make half-circles

Coarse salt 2 cups sugar 1 cup white vinegar 1 teaspoon celery seed 1/4 red bell pepper, chopped

Instructions: 1. Put cucumbers and onions in a colander and place over a medium bowl. Toss with about one tablespoon of coarse salt. 2. Set aside to drain and wilt about 30 minutes, stirring frequently. 3. In a small non-reactive bowl, combine sugar, vinegar and celery seed. Stir until sugar is dissolved, about 30 to 45 minutes. 4. Divide the cucumber and Vidalia mixture in half-pint canning jars or airtight containers. 5. Distribute bell pepper and vinegar mixture evenly in the jars. 6. Refrigerate at least eight hours before serving. These will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator. All recipes have been tested for accuracy by Georgia Department of Agriculture home economists unless otherwise noted.

“Demand is just out the roof. The demand has driven us to 13 acres of berries now,” Echols said. “There’s just a high demand for them and a lot of health benefits. Berries are full of vitamin C and antioxidants.” For those who want to enter the strawberry business, experienced producers suggest starting small, as strawberries are not the cheapest crop to get into. “The main challenge is finding a home for all the berries. They are very perishable and have to find a home quick,” Smith said. “Have multiple markets to go to when you are in full production and plan for value-added products


when you have overruns.” Carter said a common misconception about strawberry growing is the time it takes to grow. Most Georgia producers plant in the fall, though the ripe berries don’t hit store shelves until spring. One of the biggest hurdles is the unpredictable growing season weather – such as a 60-degree day followed by a freeze warning. Carter said producers can prevent damage by using row covers, or by continuously running overhead irrigation. “[That] creates a kinetic energy and allows the water to continuously freeze on top of the

blossom,” he said. “Even if it’s 22 degrees, you’re running water and keeping a continuous water supply on the blossom. You want to keep the consistent temperature.” When the berries are grown properly, it’s not the size that matters in the final product, Echols said, contrary to what some Internet sources may say. “No matter what variety, I want solid red. I don’t want white tip or white shoulders on the berry,” he said. “You get some that’s white on the inside, you’re not going to have good flavor. I’m not that concerned about the size. I’m just looking more for a solid, blood-red berry.”
