Investigaciones Agronómicas


THIS compendious work is difficult to appreciate. It is built around the investigations of the Uruguayan agricultural experiment station "La Estanzuela". The researches of this station are discussed in summary form in the text wherever they bear upon the general problems discussed; copious indexes and a full bibliography of the station's publications (commencing in 1912) are given. No complete chronicle or map of the station is supplied, and it is difficult to find a statement of its position. The book discusses many broad problems having a bearing on husbandry, including methods of investigation, laws of yield, mixed crops, autarky, and the system of Henry George; and sometimes gives unexpected information, such as a survey of the organization of plant genetieal inquiry in the Argentine, Uruguay and the Brazilian province of Rio Grande do Sul.
