3.0 out of 5 stars A broad range of information
The agricultural notebook covers a vast range of agricultural areas which is very good however it does not go in to too much detail in the specific areas. Therefore if you have a specific area to look at like dairy for instance there are other books which look at this area in greater detail and would be of more use.

The Agricultural Notebook has been the mainstay of most general agricultural courses for a number of years. As a single source, it provides a great deal of relevant information for students and farmers alike. However, the field of UK and European agriculure is so large and one book can only hold so much information. In summery, this book is highly recommended but on the understanding that, unless suplimented by additional texts, its generality somewhat limits its overall value.

This book is just fantastic. It has all the relevant information needed. It has helped me so much in my National Diploma Agricultural Course. I would have not been able to do my assignments without this book. This is must for any student doing agriculture or a similar course.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book, 16 Dec 2010
This review is from: The Agricultural Notebook (Paperback)
a good book.

it seems to cover all the major areas of agriculture although having been written in 2003 is somewhat out of date regarding things such as the CAP.

it can be fairly general at times for example when talking about management and think it could be improved by being more specific to farming.

im happy that i bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative Covering Several Subjects., 8 Jan 2014
By 
P (Dorset, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Agricultural Notebook (Paperback)
This books is a must have for anyone in the farming industry. The content within it is thorough and precise. There are several different subject areas that are covered within this book. Ranging from; Farm Management, Crop Production, Grassland Management, Crop Health/Weed Control, Animal Production (Cattle, Sheep and Goats, Pigs and Poultry), Farm equipment and its maintenance and Farm Buildings.

The book is bound very tightly which is essential to preserving nearly 700 pages. Everything about this book is ideal for all levels of experience. Lots of the content in this book are easy to understand, even for people without previous agricultural education or background. Equally there are several parts of this book (not many though) that would only apply and be useful to farm managers and general farm workers.

I have no doubt this would be the book of choice for researchers, students and farmers alike.

I hope this review has been useful. Please vote it 'helpful' below!
