WYTHEVILLE, Va. (AP) -- The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation says the two major candidates for governor will discuss farm and forestry issues at a forum in Wytheville (WITH'-vihl).

Federation president Wayne F. Pryor said the forum Friday will give Republican Ken Cuccinelli and Democrat Terry McAuliffe the opportunity to discuss their plans for Virginia's largest industry, agriculture and forest products.

The forum at Wytheville Community College will be hosted by the Farm Bureau's Young Farmers Committee. The candidates will also take written questions from the audience.
