Abstract
Destruction of grass has so long characterized land use in America, and the movement to restore grassl is so recent that it would be unjustifiable to state unqualifiedly that this country is adopting a grassland agriculture. It may never be practicable for America to adopt generally the grassland practices of Europe or New Zealand; and there is reason to question the economic feasibility of adopting such practices in certain parts of this country. But that America during the last few years has launched and is supporting movements tending definitely in the direction of a grassland agriculture is plain to every observer. The more I learn of the historical development of grassland agriculture, the more I am disposed to feel that America is treading the same course as that followed by other countries a generation or more ago.
