Abstract
Dr. Keen's article gives a comprehensive account of our knowledge of certain aspects of the science of soil physic and its application to cultivation from the period of true and false traditional methods of early times up to the present day, when increasing numbers of specialized research workers are being engaged on all aspects of this relatively new science. Though much labolatory and field work on what may be termed the chemistry side of soil science was undertaken during the last century, the study of soil physics and the application of the knowledge gained to varying soil and climatic conditions was, unfortunately, largely neglected until about the beginning of this century.
