Traditional American Farming Techniques remains as valuable today as when it was first published in 1916. More than one thousand pages brim with information - everything from the science behind crop rotation to the specifics of breeding better hogs; from growing perfect celery to maximizing yields in subtropical citrus groves; from improving farm soils to dealing with insect infestations and diseases of crops and livestock using methods today's organic farmers would recognize and approve of.
Copiously illustrated, this guide was the most useful book of its kind in the early twentieth century. Small-scale farmers will find it just as useful - even invaluable - today.
