From the cover: “the present volume is a sequel to the author’s The Soil and the Plant. It has been written for a wide circle of readers. Besides students in colleges and farm institutes, gardeners professional and amateur, market gardeners, farmers and fertiliser merchants should have a knowledge of those substances which are used to assist the growth of plants. Some small knowledge of chemistry is essential in order to understand the methods of manufacture and also the nature of the different fertilisers. Armed with that knowledge, fewer mistakes will be made in their application. The aim has been to give to readers, as briefly as possible, a clear account of the nature of the various substances. The industrial side has grown enormously in the last two decades. Chapters on the preparation of compound fertilisers and on the Fertilisers and Feeding Stuffs Act have therefore been included.”
