It was Friedrich the Great, King of Prussia (1740-1772), who in response to the ever present fear of famine ordered his well organized Prussian bureaucracy to implement a comprehensive education and information campaign promoting systematic potato cultivation. The co-called "Kartoffelbefehl" (Potatoe Decree of 1756 ) stand as a testimony to Friedrich's visionary transformation of Prussia into a modern state. The potato plant, brought over from Peru by the Spaniards in the mid 16th century had by the time of the Potato Decree already been in Europe for 200 years without being acknowledged for it nourishing potential and thus largely ignored. By late 1780ties Friedrich's efforts to educate and persuade the deeply skeptical and mostly rural population of the benefits of the crop eventually paid off and the potato has since become a staple food in Germany
