Abstract
During the last few years, the world has awoken to the dangers threatening it from soil exhaustion caused by short-sighted methods of agriculture. Much has been written on the subject, and at least one country, the United States, has taken active steps to prevent the impending catastrophe. But in many parts of the British Empire and elsewhere the economic incentive to exploit the soil remains too great to be resisted, so that a problem of great urgency awaits solution. Mr. G. V. Jacks, Deputy Director of the Imperial Bureau of Soil Science at the world-famed Rothamsted Experimental Agricultural Station, here describes the whole matter with a lucidity and a freedom from technicalities that will make it "clear to every reader.
