THE annual volume for 1937 of the Journal of the Royal Agricultural Society of England has now been published and includes as in recent years the “Farmer's Guide to Agricultural Research”. The latter has been a feature of the Society's publications for the past twelve years, and consists of a number of valuable summaries of recent research work in the leading branches of agriculture, each section being prepared by an acknowledged expert on the subject. The various sections and the authors responsible for them are the same as in the previous issue. Space does not allow of reference to all the many interesting articles in this number of the journal, but mention may be made of the account of two centuries of Cheshire cheese farming, which gives a vivid and often humorous picture of agricultural life in England during the period under review. The Leckford Estate, Ltd., forms this year's subject in the series of notable farming enterprises.
