Corn and Soybean Consumption and Production in Virginia, Beth Ann Huffman and David Kenyon. Virginia is deficit in its production of corn and soybeans. The poultry and hog industries, large consumers of corn and soybeans, import most of their supply from outside the state. This importing of nutrients in the form of corn and soybean meal for feed results in excess waste that cannot be land applied because of too little crop land where the waste is produced relative to the amount of waste. The Northern Neck where much of the corn and soybeans grown in the state are produced are limited to commercial fertilizer for nutrients. Further research will be done to evaluate the feasibility of moving poultry litter east and shipping corn and soybeans to the Shenandoah Valley.
