The Principles of Agriculture: a Text-book for Schools and Rural Societies

Article metrics

Abstract

THIS is a work written by eight of the professors and teachers of Cornell University. It attempts within the limits of a small volume to give an elementary popular account of the principles of agriculture. The task is made the more difficult as the subject is not limited to the discussion of the conditions necessary for the growth of field crops, but includes fruit culture, and a long section on animal physiology and nutrition. It follows, consequently, that a great deal is left out that we should have expected to find. An attempt is made to reduce the necessary deficiencies of the book by frequently referring the reader to other books treating the subject more fully.

The Principles of Agriculture: a Text-book for Schools and Rural Societies.

Edited by L. H. Bailey. Pp. xv + 300. (New York: the Macmillan Company. London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd., 1898.)
