Description : "Not only do we need to know what agriculture is, but the relative importance of its parts." The Principles of Agriculture is an extensively comprehensive handbook covering absolutely everything necessary for success in agriculture, written by one of the most knowledgeable practitioners of his time: Liberty Hyde Bailey. This text starts by outlining the intrinsic roles of science and business in agriculture, going on in a logical order to set forth the skeleton of the subject to be used by a teacher in agricultural education. A seminal piece on agriculture, this scarce text will appeal to those interested in the evolution of modern agriculture and constitutes a must-have for collectors of Bailey s work. American-born Liberty Hyde Bailey was a prolific horticulturist and botanist who wrote extensively on both topics. Originally published in 1897, we now proudly republish this scarce classic with an additional biography of the author."

Description : This book is written for the first generation farmer, however, it will also appeal to a much wider audience, including established farmers. The book gives readers the information they need to commit themselves to a farming life, even if they lack experience and finances. It encourages would-be farmers to have a go at farming on their own, whether it be a hobby farm, part-time farm, or a full-time enterprise. How to Become a First-Generation Farmer covers a wide range of topics, including renting land and buying a field, as well as all the livestock enterprises, arable farming, haymaking, silage making, and much more. Written from a British perspective, a chapter is included on how to obtain planning permission for a mobile home and permanent dwelling in a greenbelt area, along with how to go about construction building (invaluable for those that need to live on the premises). As an added bonus, author John Terry writes with a sense of humor that uniquely shines through. [Subject: Agriculture, Farming]

Description : Excerpt from Productive Farming This book is intended to suit the needs of rural schools of all kinds, and graded village and city schools chiefly below high-school rank. It is believed that many high-schools wanting a less advanced course in agriculture than is offered in more difficult books will find this text helpful. It is hoped that farmers and others pursuing a short course, a reading-circle course, a correspondence course, or a home-reading course will find this volume of value. Such persons should read the exercises but probably omit the trial of some of them. In the preparation of this book the writer has been aided very materially by a number of people. The ever-present memory of the boys and girls with whom the writer has associated as a schoolmate or as teacher in the rural schools and graded schools has been an inspiration and help in preparing every lesson to be studied by other such boys and girls. The many teachers of both rural and graded schools who have criticized the lessons as they have been presented by the writer have spurred him on to do his best in the making of this book. It is to such teachers and such boys and girls that this book should be dedicated, for they have been in the writer's mind every moment of the time. Special acknowledgment is due to a number of persons who have helped in the preparation of the whole book or of special chapters. Professor Dick J. Crosby, Specialist in Agricultural Education of the United States Department of Agriculture, has read the first manuscript of the whole book and parts of the second draft. His suggestions and help have been so valuable that his name should go on the title page if he would allow it.

Description : Excerpt from Agriculture and Life: A Text-Book for Normal Schools and Teachers Reading Circles This book was written for teachers. It was written by one who for years has taught Agriculture and Nature Study to pupils of all grades and ages. Most of the book consists of lectures delivered many times before Farmers' and Teachers' Institutes. The book is intended for Teachers' Reading Circles and Normal Training Classes. This book does not take the place of the text-book, such as Davis's Productive Farming. This book is written by one of a large number of teachers who believe that we should teach from things largely and teach by having pupils do things worth while at home. This book should be of help on the teacher's desk as a guide for her daily work. Agriculture must at all times be closely correlated with the home activities of the pupils. School Agriculture aims to teach things that are new, are a little more worth while doing than what is being done; that being true, a book cannot present matter for all time and cover our big, varied country. The best things to do will be changing, and hence a book is hardly off the press before it is out of date. A book on teaching Agriculture will be valuable for its suggestions and for the enthusiasm it puts into the teachers to take hold of the work. The subjects presented in School Agriculture should have seasonal sequence. Schools open in September; at that time the home folk are gathering grain, garden vegetables and seeds. As cold weather approaches the home folk begin to prepare for sheltering the plants and animals; then winter comes and the home folk feed the stock, take part in the grain and stock shows, plan the farm and the work for another year. As spring approaches they become interested in the soil, crop rotations, plowing, etc. It will be noticed that the chapters largely follow the seasonal interests of the folk on the farms. But it is to be hoped that the teacher will not kill the interest in Agriculture by following too rigidly a course of study. Therefore suggestions are given in nearly every chapter for work to be done in other months of the year. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Description : Excerpt from Effective Farming: A Text-Book for American Schools To meet the new demands, many texts are appearing. The present book is one of the contributions to this rapidly enlarging field, drawn from several years' experience as a teacher of agriculture in both high school and college. It aims to present instruction in practical agriculture in such a way as to be read ily understood by both pupil and general reader, and to be directly adaptable, at the same time, to the needs of the class room and laboratory. Agriculture is a subject of great variety. One person cannot cover it all. As indicated in certain parts of the text, some of the matter has been compiled from publications of the United States Department of Agriculture and the state experiment stations. This form of compilation suggests the kind of valuable information that can be gleaned from these publications. Too few teachers realize the great extent of practical teaching, material in these bulletins and circulars.

Description : Excerpt from Effective Farming: A Text-Book for American Schools As early as 1824 a. text-book of agriculture was published in the United States. This book was an agricultural reader, by Daniel Adams. In 1837 a "Farmer's School Book," by Orville Taylor, was published at Albany and Ithaca, N. Y. For one hundred years there has been pressure for the introduction of agriculture into schools. The subject has waited, however, for many reasons. The industrial development of the middle of the last century undoubtedly obscured the importance of agriculture. The colleges of agriculture were expected to satisfy much of the demand. In the later years of the last century the profits in farming were difficult and small. Schools have been unadapted to teaching in agriculture. Now, however, the way has opened. A national law of vast significance (The Smith-Hughes Act) has provided the means for redirecting the schools and providing instruction in agriculture and home-making. Many schools have learned to teach these subjects. It is admitted by all that the vocational subjects dealing with land and its produce are essential to any school system that would help maintain the best kind of civilization. Our first duty is to care for the earth. If we cannot produce our supplies for food and clothing, all the other elements of society perish. A text-book of agriculture, therefore, deals not only with an interesting set of subjects but it also strikes at the foundations of human institutions. No longer shall we feed ourselves by chance or by foraging; the time is rapidly passing when we may longer till the earth carelessly or ignorantly. All the people demand that the farmer shall be intelligent, alert, and resourceful, providing a proper support for society. We cannot live on the past.

Description : This book critically assesses the role of agrobiodiversity in school gardens and its contribution to diversifying diets, promoting healthy eating habits and improving nutrition among schoolchildren as well as other benefits relating to climate change adaptation, ecoliteracy and greening school spaces. Many schoolchildren suffer from various forms of malnutrition and it is important to address their nutritional status given the effects it has on their health, cognition, and subsequently their educational achievement. Schools are recognized as excellent platforms for promoting lifelong healthy eating and improving long-term, sustainable nutrition security required for optimum educational outcomes. This book reveals the multiple benefits of school gardens for improving nutrition and education for children and their families. It examines issues such as school feeding, community food production, school gardening, nutritional education and the promotion of agrobiodiversity, and draws on international case studies, from both developed and developing nations, to provide a comprehensive global assessment. This book will be essential reading for those interested in promoting agrobiodiversity, sustainable nutrition and healthy eating habits in schools and public institutions more generally. It identifies recurring and emerging issues, establishes best practices, identifies key criteria for success and advises on strategies for scaling up and scaling out elements to improve the uptake of school gardens.
