In the 1920's, agriculture in Georgia was striving just like the economy. The demand for cotton was high because people wanted to spend money on clothes. Once the economy started to decrease farms over produced and had no one to sell it to.
Then the boll weevil infested southern cotton farms. There it fed off of all the cotton and now no farmers had anything to sell.
where did all our cotton go?
cotton tastes so good!
Then, as if agriculture couldn't get any worse...a drought happened. This caused all the soil to dry up. If any cotton hadn't already been a result of over production or destroyed by the boll weevil, this is when it died. Farms everywhere were going through a severe depression.
But then FDR came along and was able to create a plan to get farmers/everyone out of the Great Depression. This was called The New Deal. The New Deal gave people lots of jobs in the city but it also gave more technology to farms.
Soon this made rural Georgian areas develop industrially quicker than other states' rural areas so they could make money somewhere. More and more people moved out of the rural areas and into the city for work in the industry.
Now, Georgia is completely out of depression and farms have healed themselves and gone back to normal. Atlanta is very industrial now but it also has a lot of agriculture too. However, ever since the new deal was created in Georgia, the state has become more industrial due to more work in the city
