"It will not be doubted, that with reference either to individual, or National Welfare, Agriculture is of primary importance. In proportion as Nations advance in population, and other circumstances of maturity, this truth becomes more apparent; and renders the cultivation of the Soil more and more, an object of public patronage."
-- George Washington (Eighth Annual Message to Congress, 1796)
Reference: Washington's Maxims, 67.
