Agriculture

Some Charles City farms along the James River have been under continuous crop production for more than 400 years, but they remain highly productive land. Local farmers have won national contests in bushel per acre grain production. A Charles City farmer has been the National Corn Grower in three years, producing 300+ bushels of corn per acre in the NO-TILL non-irrigated category. Two Charles City farmers have won the National Wheat Growers First Place, producing 140+ bushels per acre of soft red winter wheat.


Charles City farmers have also helped to develope the leading technology for controlling runoff from grain cultivation. Fully 90 % of crop land in Charles City is in a never-till cropping system. When Hurricane Floyd in 1999 dropped approximately 19 inches of rain in 24 hours on some long-term never-till fields, visual observation showed virtually no erosion. A scientific study conducted in 2000 on one long term never-till field demonstrated a 99.9% reduction in sediment runoff compared to conventional tillage and a 95% reduction of runoff of nitrogen and phosphorous. This new technology could become a primary strategy to achieve a healthy Chesapeake Bay. Hurricane Floyd was a major hurricane which struck the Bahamas and the United States in 1999, causing major flooding and doing billions of US dollars in damages. ... 1999 (MCMXCIX) is a common year starting on Friday, and was designated the International Year of Older Persons by the United Nations. ...
