One of Mr. Carvers most important contributions as a chemist and scientist;

"Carver recognized that widespread monoculture of cotton among Southern farmers was stripping the soil of nutrients, leading to erosion and leaving black farmers destitute [source: Indiana.edu ]. He therefore devoted much of his energy to studying the use of natural fertilizers and nutrient-restoring techniques, like crop rotation, as well as promoting alternatives to cotton, like sweet potatoes and peanuts."

He studied natural fertilizers that put nutrients back into the soil thus mitigating soil erosion.
