The Southern Planter, established in Richmond, Virginia, in 1841, was an influential agricultural journal in the years preceding the Civil War. It is now the oldest farm magazine still in continuous publication. In the years before the war there were several owners, editors, and publishers, with the attendant subscription and financial problems of a new editorial venture. Southern Planter grew in size and in influence and mirrored the agricultural changes of its region.
