Baillière's Encyclopædia of Scientific Agriculture

    Article metrics


    ABSTRACTING journals and periodic reviews of progress, by which the pure sciences meet the difficulty of the rapid growth of their literature, leave certain needs in agricultural science unsatisfied. In their applications to farming practice the various sciences become closely interdependent and, also, the scientific worker in agriculture must watch closely the alterations and advances in practical husbandry. Further, the practitioner, with science bearing ever more forcibly upon his activities, stands in need of a specially prepared presentation of its applications to his industry. An encyclopædia of scientific agriculture is thus a logical and timely enterprise in which the investigator, the teacher, the student, and the farmer are certain to be interested.
