The Question: What was George Washington Carver famous for developing?
A Peanut butter
B Crop rotation methods
C Petroleum jelly
The great agronomist was a famous peanut proponent in his day, but his many innovations didn’t actually include peanut butter (you can thank the Aztecs for that). What he did invent were numerous methods of replenishing nutrients in Southern soils depleted by years of cotton planting. Carver encouraged farmers to adopt alternative crops like peanuts and sweet potatoes, helping to change the economic landscape of the Deep South and make its farmlands more sustainable.
The correct answer is Crop rotation methods.
