Summaries of Addresses of Presidents of Sections: Soil Science

    Article metrics


    THE advances which have been made in soil science in the twentieth century are discussed in his presidential address to Section M (Agriculture) by Prof. James Hendrick. At the beginning of this century, agricultural research was in a low state in Great Britain, where there was only one great research station, a private institution, Rothamsted.

The development of the system of agricultural education has led to increase and improvement of agricultural research.
