It might seem impossible to fit all information on the subject of farming and farm management in one book, but this comprehensive volume includes everything a novice or expert farmer will ever need to know. Originally published in 1916, Traditional American Farming Techniques is filled with facts and tips written by specialists on a plethora of subjects.

Everything that goes into starting and maintaining a successful farm, big or small, is included, along with invaluable information on harvesting and marketing crops like wheat, corn, potatoes, beans, alfalfa, flax, meadow and pasture grasses, sugar crops, cotton, tobacco, nuts, and tropical fruits. Youll find tips on livestock farming; breeding and care of horses, cattle, pigs, goats, sheep, and poultry; and information on:

The science and maintenance of soil

The best natural and commercial fertilizers

Correctly using various types of manure

Watering and drainage techniques

Dairy farming, vegetable and fruit gardening, and forestry

Purposes and methods of crop rotation

Pest and insect control

And so much more!

Traditional American Farming Techniques clearly and thoroughly explains how to manage a prospering farm, how to use equipment and build farm buildings, and includes handy tables of weights, measures, and agricultural statistics. This is the ultimate reference for any farmer.
