Overview

Excerpt from Soils and Manures

The present work is intended mainly for those who are, or who expect to become, interested in the cultivation of land. The author has a large acquaintance amongst men of that class - farmers, planters, fruit growers, etc. - and has himself taken part in the practical work, both in this country and in Canada, and he believes that it is in regard to the fundamental truths which underlie the phenomena of agriculture that they stand most in need of instruction. As a rule the mechanical part of the work is organised and carried out with systematic efficiency, and when mistakes are made they are generally attributable to lack of knowledge of the kind referred to.

The subject has therefore been treated from what is popularly called the scientific point of view. Some previous knowledge of chemistry is necessary, and it has been assumed that readers are familiar with at least the rudiments of that science. For purely practical purposes this will probably be found sufficient, but it is obvious that wider general reading must be of great advantage to the student.
