FLORIDA THEMES : AGRICULTURE

Agriculture has always been an important issue in Florida history, and it varies with the region of the state. From sugar cane in the South to citrus in Central Florida to cattle ranches of the North, Florida agriculture is important and varied. Nineteenth-century crops of cotton and tobacco have given way to twentieth-century corn, peanuts, shrimp harvesting and other food sources. Historical agricultural experiments include ostrich farming and Satsuma oranges and grapes. Many of the works in the Florida Heritage Collection have discussed Florida agriculture, including works on gardening, farming, soil, topography and climate.
