Caption: Vladimir Kovalevsky (1838-1945), Russian statesman and agricultural scientist. As well as holding various political positions Kovalevsky published statistics on harvests in Russia. He established laws governing the shortening of the growing season of bread grain. He was one of the founders of agricultural ecology, with an understanding of the importance to agriculture of soil quality, methods of working the land, meteorological conditions, biodiversity, and environmental factors. He studied the effect of meteorological, hydrological, and temperature factors on harvest, and believed peasant farmers' traditions and experience must be taken into consideration in agriculture. He developed ideas for cultivation of dry land, anti-desertification measures, and beekeeping, and opposed use of excess mineral fertilizer.
