The Science and Practice of Manuring For the Use of Amateur, Market, and Professional Growers, Orchardists, etc

    Abstract

    MR. DYKE is well known to horticulturists as a man with a strong scientific bent, and by those men of science who are interested in large-scale crop production he is recognised as possessing a considerable stock of problems still requiring solution. The scientific worker will, therefore, take up this book in the hope, of finding a record of some of these observations. He will not be alto gether disappointed, yet he will not find so much as he might hope; for Mr. Dyke, having written for the practical man and not for the plant physiologist, sets out some of the elementary scientific facts which he considers the grower needs, but he has not always recorded the growers' observations, which the scientific reader would like to have had, and which no doubt Mr. Dyke considered the practical grower did not need to be told.
