This volume contains a guide to ploughing, with particular focus on ploughing on dry land farms. Areas covered within this text include making seed beds, useful materials, equipment, technique, when to plough, common problems, and much more besides. Although an antiquarian text, much of the information contained herein is timeless, and will be of considerable value for farmers and others interested in the ploughing of dry farm land. Written in clear, plain language and full of helpful and interesting information, this is a text not to be missed by the modern farmer. It makes for a worthy addition to collections of farming literature. Many antique books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and costly, and it is with this in mind that we are proudly republishing 'Ploughing in Dry Areas' in an affordable modern edition complete with a new introduction on farming.
