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: Nearly as much a history of plant pathology in the U. S., this piece describes how Beverly T. Galloway conducted research that convinced politicians and farmers alike that germs caused diseases of animals and plants. Galloway succeeded in raising the status of plant research in the U. S. D. A. from a tiny office to the Bureau of Plant Industry in 1901, which became the nucleus for the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center.
