Answer:

Plantations required many workers, and the climate of the South was perfect for farming.

Explanation:

Slaves worked mostly on plantations. The climate was perfect for planting cash crops, which required a ton of workers to harvest, especially cotton. Though there were Northern slaves, the industrial revolution didn't start until after the colonies became the United States, so there weren't factories to use slave labor.
