Alternative Crops and Cropping Systems

Alternative Crops and Cropping Systems

Crop diversity is a key tenet of sustainable agriculture. Having multiple crops that fill distinct niches in an agro eco system improves the ability to manage weeds, diseases and insect pests as well as potentially improving the environmental performance of the cropping system. The goal was to write a book where as many different existing studies as possible could be presented in a single volume, making it easy for the reader to compare methods, results and conclusions.

Farm science; a foundation textbook on agriculture

The aim of this book is to explain to the farm boy the facts about farming that have puzzled him. There are many mysteries that are not mysteries to. the average boy, for the simple reason that he has never recognized their existence. No attempt is made in these pages to introduce the student to new mysteries except such as are necessary in connection with a proper explanation of those he has actually met in his experience on the farm. The primary idea underlying the book is to enable the farm boy to understand the reasons for the things he has observed but does not understand.
