About this book

First published in 1966, Lockhart and Wiseman's crop husbandry has established itself as the standard crop husbandry text for students and practitioners alike. Radically revised and expanded, and with a new team of authors, the eighth edition confirms and extends its reputation. Part 1 looks at the basic conditions for crop growth with chapters on plant structure and growth, soil analysis and management, and the use of fertilisers and manures. There is also a new chapter on the influence of climate and weather. Part 2 surveys general aspects of crop husbandry. As well as a discussion of cropping techniques, there are new chapters on the important new areas of integrated crop management and organic crop husbandry, as well as discussion of seed selection and production. Part 3 then looks at how these general techniques are applied to particular crops, with chapters on cereals, root crops, fresh harvested crops, forage crops and combinable break crops. Part 4 considers the use of grassland with chapters on classification, sowing and management, grazing and conservation for winter feed. Lockhart and Wiseman's crop husbandry remains the standard text for general agriculture, land management and agri-business courses, and is a valuable practical reference for the farming industry.
