BARON LIEBIG ON TILLAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866
BARON LIEBIG ON TILLAGE. Mark Lane Express. HEAVY land may be very quickly got clean and in condition by the plough, the Croskill clod-&lt;*> crusher, and heavy, deep harrows, with teeth a foot to eighteen inches long. Of course, this must be done in dry weather, after very deep K toughing and subsoiling, the surface having een scarified immediately on the removal of the corn crop. Leibig points out to us how necessary it is to separate each granule so far as practi cable. Many of tli c Baron's remarks and dis coveries in connect ion with tillage are so original and so valuable, that I wish I bad time to quote them all; but failing that, I recommend a care ful study of his works, particularly "The Natural Laws of Husbandry," " Letters on Modern Agriculture," aud " Principles of Agri cultural Chemistry ;" we should then know why salt, nitrate of soda, and superphosphate are useful in some cases, and valueless in others. : Permit me to read the following quotations from ' L...
