Abstract

More than 2,000 years ago it was known that the application of farm manures to soils increased the yields of various crops. Since then the need of putting back into the land in this way some of the fertility taken out by crops has become more and more evident. It was not, however, until the middle of the last century that t much of the mystery as to why the action of manures was beneficial was cleared up by the brilliant researches of Liebig.
