Your Guide to the Soil

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

"In 'Your Guide to the Soil', J. Gordon Cook outlines the modern scientific views about the soil. He explains how soil is formed, and describes the unending cycle of changes that are forever taking place in the soil. From this intense activity come the plant nutrients that maintain the growth of all crop plants.

Dr Cook explains how fertilizers and other materials may be used to increase the productivity of the soil, and describes how we can sustain the structure that is so essential to soil fertility.

This is a fascinating book for all who are interested in the cultivation of the soil, whether as a hobby or as a livelihood. In common with other books in the non-specialist, and it will serve as an invaluable reference book for the enthusiastic gardener and farmer alike."
