“Good seed, plenty of high grade fertilizer, and careful cultivation are necessary to produce a crop that is worth poisoning” (Wall Street Journal, 1924). This talk is about the poisoning of United States agriculture. It tells a story of how one of the early industrial revolution’s most toxic wastes became essential to the intensive production of food and fiber across the United States.
