9781330222829: Vegetable Forcing (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Vegetable Forcing

Vegetable forcing occupies an important place in American horticulture. The subject is taught to large numbers of students, and it has enlisted the interest of thousands of gardeners who are attracted by the idea of growing vegetables under artificial conditions. To meet the needs of these two groups of people has been the constant aim of the author.

The treatise is necessarily condensed. It has not seemed expedient to enter into a lengthy discussion of subjects naturally belonging to the entomologist, plant pathologist, botanist or chemist. This would necessarily result in the overlapping of college courses and in trying the patience of practical growers who want merely a working knowledge of the principles and practices in volved in the production of the various forcing crops.

Frequent visits have been made to the most important vegetable forcing centers of the United States. Many bulletins of the agricultural experiment stations and of the United States Department of Agriculture have proved to be of great value as sources of information. Special mention should be made in this connection of the Market Growers' Journal, and of courtesies extended by its mana ger and editor, Sam W. Severance.

The preparation of the manuscript would not have been possible without the assistance of scores of friends. Ex tensive correspondence was conducted with numerous growers, teachers and investigators, and I desire to thank all of these friends for their most valuable co-operation.
