Excerpt from The Southern Planter, Vol. 21: Devoted to Agriculture, Horticulture, and the Household Arts; February, 1861
Mr. James howard (of Bedford) said he subscribed fully to the opinion that the general employment of steam-power in agriculture would tend to in crease the employment of labourers. Within his own knowledge, it had in some degree extended the growth of root crops. He could refer to a case in which 85 acres of roots were grown upon land which had never before been so cropped and if they grew larger root crops, they increased the creps of corn, and 1n_ creased also the employment of labour. Looking at the increase of population in this country since the extension of steam-power in'our manufactories, be surprised to find that it took upwards of 200 years previously to the introduction of the steam-engine to gain an increase in the population of whilst since its introduction the population had increased He thought there were no more efieetual means of raising the intelligence of the farm labourer than a more general introduction of steam-power. A farmer who paid a man merely to swing a ﬂail could not afford to pay for intelligence - it was nothing more than the exercise of brute force; but to a man who paid £500 for a steam engine, a shilling per day additional would be a triﬂe in the wages of the men employed to direct that machinery.
