Soil Conditions and Plant Growth


“How the chemist can help the farmer. He can analyse the soil and the crop, and by comparing the results of his analyses, can tell the farmer how to manure his land so as to grow profitable crops.” The above is a quotation, as nearly as the writer can remember, which formed the preface to a syllabus on which he was asked to give a course of local lectures about twenty years ago, when local lectures were in full swing under the newly-constituted technical education committees of the county councils.
