Mathieu de Dombasle : agronomie et innovation 1750-1850

Abstract : C.J.A. Mathieu de Dombasle (1777-1843) was an agronomist from Lorraine who was recognizes by is peers in 1821. His conception of a swing plough and the writing in French of the theory on the plough went down in history as the most innovating ones. The agronomist along with the plough that bears his name, the famous Dombasle plough, are known first by the historians of the farming techniques and by the agronomist who are interested in the Back ground of their discipline. Never had such a thorough and systematic paper been written about Mathieu de Dombasle so far. Own biography aims at grasping the process of institutionalisation of agronomy. I will analyse Mathieu de Dombasle's backgrounds, and his training as a chemist. Thus, these points will help us understand how he progressively took up studying agriculture in general and later, soil.
