Making the corn belt: a geographical history of Middle-western agriculture

Auteur :
HUDSON, J.C.

Description :
Superb exposition on the evolution of one of America's classic economic regions based on growing maize and feeding that grain to pigs. Among the major permutations of this region in the late 20th century are the introduction of soybeans as a major crop, irrigation on its western margins, prime importance of feedlots, and the growth of agribusiness. - (DWG)
