Description
This illustrated handbook of agriculture—the "most healthful, the most useful, the most noble employment of man," according to its author—thoroughly describes the soil, the irrigation methods, and the food production methods that American farmers knew in the mid-19th century. R.L. Allen—also the editor of The American Agriculturist and author of Diseases of Domestic Animals—offers information on how to identify soil, and know which kinds work best with which crops; instructions for preparing the land; the purpose of meadows and grasses; tips for getting rid of weeds, bugs, and fungus; methods to prevent rot and decay in potatoes; and basic suggestions for farm buildings, fences, and shade trees.
