Altalanos talajtan


BEFORE the War, Hungary was predominantly an agricultural country with a girdle of forests; she possessed but few urban industries. The great consuming centres of Hungarian products were in Austria and in Bohemia, and for that reason Hungary was known as the granary of the Austrian Empire. In spite of efforts directed towards the attainment of self-sufficiency in manufactured products, Hungary now finds herself forced to rely more than ever upon cultivated products of her soil: even the forests lie largely outside political Hungary of to-day. Hungary's ability to weather the conditions imposed upon her has been due in no small measure to the excellence of her agricultural research and teaching.
