This research, originally under the auspices of Professor van Vuuren, was accepted by Professor Edelman after the war because of a vacuum in the Social Economic Department of the Agricultural University. Because of the change of promotors the description of the physical environment was extended. The development of Huissen was closely dependent on the history of the River Rhine, on whose bank it was originally founded near the bifurcation of the Rhine and Yssel. After the diversion of the bifurcation and its silting up Huissen lost its importance as a trading centre. The sandy soil, after which the hamlet of Het Zand was named, consisted of deposits of dike breaks and of breaks in the natural levees before the dikes were built. On these sands tobacco cultivation was introduced in the eighteenth century. After its disappearance this crop was in turn followed in the 19th century by the introduction of market-gardening and fruit- growing both for the nearby town of Arnhem and especially for the rapidly developing industrial area of the Ruhr.

The social and economic conditions of farmers and farmworkers throughout its history and at present were fully discussed.

Prospects for the development of Huissen as a horticultural centre after the severe damage of the Second World War were considered.
