This book is written especially for farmers. It makes a popular appeal to all men engaged in farming. It is designed to be a handy reference-cum-text on the whole range of agricultural Universities. Ages of farm experience and a few generations of agricultural research have given us a vast store of practical knowledge on tilling the soil and raising crops and animals. This knowledge is scattered through many volumes on different phases of the subject, in experiment station bulletins, agricultural journals and encyclopedias. The important facts on which the most successful farming is based are here brought together in orderly and readable form. The directions given for the management of the soil and the raising of crops and livestock, but the business of farming is fully discussed. The subject-matter is arranged in ten parts of a number of chapters each, and by referring to the Table of Contents any subject may be quickly found. References are given at the end of each chapter. Each chapter has been prepared by a specialist in the subject presented. The illustrations have been secured from many sources.
