Octavo, red cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xviii pp + 122 pp. Very Good+, with neat former-owner stamp & former-owner's review pasted to rear endpaper, in a Very Good dust jacket with light soiling and edgewear. From jacket: This book is the result of many years of lecturing to farmers on how fertilizers and organic manures should be used to secure good profits; showing what food crops need, and how they may be supplied. The principles involved in selecting fertilizer dressings are described, and practical recommendations are given for manuring arable crops and grass. Questions about other nutrients needed by plants; the effects of fertilizers on the quality of crops; soil fertility; and on costs of production are answered. The value of this practical manual is incalculable because it is an actual guide to maximum profit through correct utlization and avoidance of waste in manuring programs.
