Practical Agriculture
by

Publisher: D. Appleton and Company
Number of pages: 264

Description:
The science of agriculture may be said to consist of a mingling of chemistry, geology, botany, entomology, physiology, bacteriology, and other sciences, in as far as they have a bearing upon agriculture. The purpose of this book is to aid the reader and student in acquiring a knowledge of the science of agriculture as distinct from the art of agriculture; that is, a knowledge of the "why," rather than a knowledge of the "how."
