Description

Excerpt from The American Farm Book: Or Compend of American Agriculture; Being a Practical Treatise on Soils, Manures, Draining Irrigation, Grasses, Grain, Roots, Fruits, Cotton, Tobacco, Sugar Cane, Rice, and Every Staple Product of the United States Breeding, technically defined, is restricted to the produc tion of choice animals for use as future breeders, by the judi cions selection and crossing of the best specimens of the vari ous distinct breeds of domestic stock. Horticulture embraces the entire department of garden ing, the cultivation of trees, shrubbery, and fruits; and these occupations are again variously subdivided. By Planting (or the occupation of planters), is under stood the cultivation of extensive farms or plantations, for the exclusive production of one or more commercial staples, such as cotton, sugar, rice, tobacco, indigo, &c., and their preparation for a distant market. The term is peculiarly sectional, and its use so far as adopted in this country, is limited to the southern portion of it.
