Papenfuse, Edward C., Jr. "Planter Behavior and Economic Opportunity in a Staple Economy." Agricultural History 46 (1972): 297-311.
Annotation / Notes: Papenfuse challenges Avery Craven's "soil exhaustion" argument, and shows that after three generations, falling tobacco prices, which undermined planters' lifestyle, caused the dislocation Maryland older counties experienced. Soil exhaustion, he insists,"played an insignificant role in their fortunes before 1776." (p. 311).
Percy, David O. "Ax or Plow? Significant Colonial Landscape Alteration Rates in the Maryland and Virginia Tidewater." Agricultural History 66 (Spring 1992): 66-74.
Annotation / Notes: Soil exhaustion figured in colonial Maryland's decline, but it was wheat rather than tobacco that did the most damage. "While the ax created an unkempt appearance to the colonial landscape, it was the unwise use of the plow that eventually damaged the soil." (p. 74).

Annotation / Notes: Henry A. Wallace, Franklin Roosevelt's first Secretary of Agriculture, championed scientific research because he himself was scientist a hybrid corn breeder. Using emergency relief funds from the National Recovery Administration, Wallace, in 1934, transformed the small experiment station in Beltsville into a great national research center. The Bankhead-Jones Act then funded the basic research agenda.
