Agricultural Bulletins

Carver's Agricultural Bulletins
Carver's agricultural bulletins were designed to share the latest improvements in agriculture with the local farming community. The free bulletins covered crop rotation, natural fertilizers, and plant diversification, practices that today are considered innovative. He realized that he had to reach not only farmers, but also housewives and teachers. His easy-to-read writing style connected directly with these three audiences.
