The climate of New England was not suitable for agriculture and so the chief industries were shipbuilding, lumbering, fishing, and the production of tar and pitch. In contrast to New England, people in the middle colonies produced wheat, corn and oats. They were known as "bread colonies." The Chesapeake colonies had raised up tobacco plantations at first with the help of indentured servants and later with the African slaves. This colony had a good fishing industry. The lower south had an agricultural economy. The economy of the upper south was centered on tobacco while the economy of the lower south depended on rice, indigo and naval stores, which were exported to Great Britain. The differences mentioned above shows that geography and natural resources play a major part in the development of the economy in the colonies.
