This book contains a vintage handbook on farm economics, with information on different farming systems, machinery, marketing produce, buying equipment, keeping records, and much more. Although old, much of the information contained within this book is timeless and will be of considerable utility to modern prospective farmers. Contents include: "The Nature and Scope of Agricultural Economics", "Systems of Farming", "The Farming Considered as a Business Empire", "Some Units of Economic Measurements in Farm Organization and Management", "Farm Records and Accounts", "Cost of Production", "Size of Farms", "Selection of Farm Enterprises", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on agriculture and agronomy.
