Eisenhower National Historic Site
— National Park Service —The fields in front of you demonstrate Eisenhower's skill in farming. Using a system of crop rotation and contour plowing, Eisenhower slowly improved the productivity of the land. To prevent soil erosion and water run-off, fields were plowed perpendicular to the slope of the land. Soil nutrients were closely monitored and crops were rotated to rejuvenate the soil.
