(This amendment eliminates the funding for the development and marketing of speciality agriculture crops. The budget as introduced reflected a reduction in funding for this initiative from $225,000 annually to $194,095. This program was initiated in fiscal year 2006 to determine what new crops could be introduced in Virginia. Three years of funding have been provided to gather the data on speciality crops best suited to Virginia and how to market them.)
