Australian Agriculture: Reconciling Change and Tradition
Campbell, Keith O.
ISBN: 0582710898
Longman Australia 1980 1st Edition
12mo Glossy Soft Cover 274 indexed pages. Includes bibliographical references. This book has a dual purpose. First, it is an attempt to introduce city people to farmers’ attitudes and aspirations, to the social and economic environment in which they operate, and to current and likely future developments in the rural industries. Second, it aims to provide farmers and others connected with the agricultural industries with an analysis of the complexities and rami?cations of the problems with which they have to deal. The book is not concerned, other than marginally, with the physical and climatic basis of Australian agriculture nor with the biological and technological processes by which crops and livestock are produced. Such information is available in other books and monographs. This book is concerned rather with the factors which lie behind the social and political differences which are the bases of rural versus urban schisms.  Good

Tasmanian weed handbook: A guide to the identification of the main broad-leaf weeds of crops and pastures in Tasmania
Hyde-Wyatt, Brian H.
Tasmanian Dept. of Agriculture Tasmania 1975 1st Edition
8vo Soft Cover 112 indexed pages including drawings, b/w and colour illustrations. The development of a wide range of selective herbicides has made the control of the majority of broad-leaved weeds a practical proposition in most crops. For these materials to be used effectively, however, it is essential that the weeds be identified at an early stage of growth while they are still susceptible. This book has been produced to assist farmers and extension workers in the identification of young weeds. The species featured in this handbook are the most important or most commonly found weeds of crops and pasture in Tasmania. A number of less common species have been included either because they are potentially capable of becoming economically important or because they closely resemble important weeds. Unfortunately young plants have few characteristics which assist in their identification. The flowering and fruiting parts, upon which the botanical classification is largely based, are absent. In addition many of their features, for example size, leaf shape, and colour, may be variable and dependent on seasonal conditions and environmental factors. Consequently it is often impossible to identify a seedling with complete accuracy. Very few have certain characters which are specific. Identification should not be based upon a single individual and it is usually possible to find a range of specimens in different growth stages which will enable the identification to be made with greater accuracy. Weed identification cannot be learned entirely from a book. It is hoped that this Handbook will prove to be a useful aid, but skill in identification can only be achieved by constant practice in the field. Name in the front cover and in the first page. Small light stains in the cover.  Good
