We added an interesting document to the State Library of Kansas' KGI Online
Library this morning: "Chemicals for Farming." The booklet was
published in 1949 by the Kansas State Board of Agriculture as part of
its "Report" series.
The record with title linking to the 1949 documents is here:

document might be of interest to agricultural history researchers and
environmental history researchers. What jumped out at me was a chapter
called, "DDT, Gift of Science." The history of DDT promotion, use,
banning and continued limited use is a great story for people interested
in agricultural industries,
environmental/health concerns, farming and pest control.
