Yes, Crop Farming Updates provides access to reviews and recent releases on plant science, agriculture, and related disciplines. This is to cater to the readers who share common passion in these fields.
Indeed, agriculture and other sciences are intertwined. More than a century ago in 1840, the German chemist Julius von Liebeg (1803-1873) presented his report on the state of organic chemistry to the British Association for the Advancement of Science (click here to read related page). In his paper entitled Chemistry in Its Application to Agriculture and Physiology, Liebeg stated:
"Perfect Agriculture is the true foundation of all trade and industry, — it is the foundation of the riches of states. But a rational system of Agriculture cannot be formed without the application of scientific principles; for such a system must be based on an exact acquaintance with the means of nutrition of vegetables, and with the influence of soils and action of manure upon them."
The word "vegetables" apparently refers to plants.
Primarily, Crop Farming Updates aims to provide the most recent information, stories and news on the science, practice, and business of crop farming or plant agriculture and related disciplines. The owner-founder-webmaster of the agricultural site CropsReview.Com, personally selects and makes available via this page the most relevant new releases. He himself likes these new items and hereby offers these to readers who are searching for the same. This page likewise provides updates on CropsReview.Com and its contents. When deemed appropriate for the convenience of readers, old contents are sometimes inserted.
For some reasons, however, this site may encounter delay in publishing content pages. The delay may last for days, or a few weeks. Most likely it is because the author is attending to some important farm works. The limited number of books in the author's personal library also hampers the writing. Whatsoever, delay is always possible.
By subscribing to this blog, you can be informed quickly of the most recent releases, news, and changes without checking the site from time to time. New pages and updates to old ones are released through RSS.
