Grain producer says bay bill is too aggressive

Caroline County grain producer said Virginia farmers have made major changes in their production practices in recent decades. Lynwood Broaddus explains on The Real Dirt that proposed mandatory regulations won’t do much to clean up the Chesapeake Bay, but they could force him and other farmers to leave agriculture.

Virginia Farm Bureau Federation is using The Real Dirt, a video blog on YouTube (TheRealDirtVA) and, to share information about its producer members’ concerns. The Real Dirt features short video commentaries from some of Farm Bureau’s 36,000 members who farm.
