Albrecht
When insect crops attack our crops we can see the enemy, therefore we do something to eliminate the destruction (pesticide), or if our crops are overrun with weed again the damage is obvious so we step in to correct these conditions (herbicide)
Its ironic that the chemical they used back then and up until recently were more damaging to our health and that of the environment even up until recently that Albrecht failed to or was unaware of its impact.
He did however write about chemicals (Weed Killers and Soil Fertility, The Rural New Yorker, 1950) So no doubt his research although sound would if he was alive today have vastly changed.
