AGRONOMIES OF THE USA’s COLONIAL ERA EASTERN SEABOARD
REGIONAL MORRILL ACT AGRONOMICAL VACATING
1) Temporal variabilities in varietal genetics throughout the history of migratory peoples and seed dispersal pertain today essentially to GMO debates of copyrighted genetic sequences of anemophilic crops. However, overall trends of seed dispersal genetics across space and time limitrophes of geological, hydrological and thermodynamic definition and thus moving through history and geography onto variably arable crop lands; here are postulated to concern other than such as trait based immunity to herbicidal chemistries of phosphate sugars. Thus obscured then are such aspects as entomological herbivory treatment resistance or tolerance to limnological factors such as percolation of nutrients and minerals through multiplicitous regional soil types.
Contextual to migratory evolutionary pressures over variable timeframes; can adaptively relocated with additional possible genetic modification be unsuited to reversion into original crop lands given sufficient distance of pertaining relocation? Entropics of genetic drift?
2) Senator Morrill’s own home state of Vermont was in economic terms restructured repeatedly by the strife of the US Civil War as it effected the cotton mills at Lowell on the Merrimack and Biddeford on the Sacco on costal Massachusetts inclusive of Maine. Due to cotton crop disruptions in the south as well as to a damaged rail and sail transportation sector, Vermont wool became the chosen textile fiber in supporting those mills and was increasingly supplemented in fashion by leather products from Texan cattle drives towards the ‘62 pacific line and bound to become NY Strips and packed beef at Manhattan island; whence hides continued to tanneries on the Charles in Boston. In terms of fashion, the milinary trade in feathers boomed with punt gunning for the market trades in wild fowl for meat and felt pelts for hatters.
Further, the Morrill Act’s de facto application of the market economic premise of economies of scale, and their being perhaps inadvertently applied during a Monroe Doctrine era of aversion to Imperial power, ultimately sent Vermont dairy to better barn and fluid dynamic transportation and infrastructure in and from Wisconsin. Then Vermont farming’s evolution into textile science similarly saw it’s wool fiber industry migrate eventually to Wyoming, Colorado and New Zealand.
