Transcript of Southern Plantations
By: Melina Ramirez
Plantation owners are know as planters. Planters were able to grow lots of cash crop when they grew tobacco, rice, and indigo, leading to more plantations.
The earliest plantations were usally built in the rich soil of the southern tidewaters.
With all the crops that the plantations made, people came from England on boats to trade the planters for crops, in exchange for shoes, laces, thread, farm tools, and dishes.
The planters could use the traded farm tools
for their plantations.
Cash Crop: A crop that is grow
Tidewater: Low-lying land along a coast.
Planters that own the largest plantions usally sold their cash crop through a broker. A planter would use a broker to buy and sell certain things, usally giving the broker a list of items. Planters would tell the broker to go to the market with the planters crops to go and buy items from England and sell and/or trade with them.
Broker: A person who is paid to buy and sell items for someone.
Plantation owners get
more cash crop to sell
with larger fields.
Farm owners don't
get as much cash crop to sell because of a small
amount of land.
