The Inventions of George Washington Carver


George Washington Carver was a lecturer at the Normal and Industrial Institute of Blacks in Tuskegee in 1897. Carver was mainly concerned with the study of the problems faced by cotton farmers. He developed a method by which farmers could retain and preserve nutrients in the soil.

This was also known as the crop rotation method. It is considered one of the most important inventions in the field of agriculture. A George Washington carver suggested farmers plant peanuts, peanuts and sweet potatoes so the soil could be enriched for cotton harvesting.

Carver also created a market for peanuts by discovering hundreds of uses for it. He did the same for sweet potatoes, soy and pecans. He also invented various colors of hundreds of shades and mainly used agricultural crops for them. Before that, textile dyes were always imported from England. Carver also invented a process for making soybean dyes and stains and was allowed to patent this invention. However, George Washington Carver did not patent most of his inventions and as a result he made no profit from his many inventions and discoveries.

He also invented a stove chemistry that helped improve the diet of families who are unable to buy meat. Carver was also the premier person who developed peanut butter, shaving cream, fabric dye, leather dye, tonic, and wood stain laxative. He also invented several food products that are made from peanuts and soy. He also invented flour, sugar and yeast. His contribution to society in terms of agricultural products is enormous.
