This is a great post, and thanks for putting the complete PDF. I am writing a PhD on the history of 20thC agricultural production processes (mainly focussed on UK), and this French perspective is very useful. There is undoubtedly a (less-well enunciated) British Colbertism, or perhaps better 'techno-nationalism', in regard to pesticide use in the post-war years - synthetic pesticides being made from British coal tar and brine, in British chemical factories, and marketed at British farmers. Thanks again, best wishes from William.
