AGRICULTURE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Examiner — 9 April 1842

AGRICULTURE. From a Lecture by Mllr. John lVells. (Continued from our last,) Although an adequate degree of knowledge concerning it be scemingly of very easy attainment, yet in fact uo small degree of judgment and ex perience are necessary to arrange the plan, and to adapt it to all the varieties of climate, soil, and situation. It is therefore not to lie wondered at thatmany different opinions should beentertained, though all are, perhaps, very much founded upon truth, what would be suitable to one case being totally inapplicable to another. As before ob served, the great art of cultivation consists in the maintenance of the land, at least, in sound con dition, and without inmpoverishing it, it. it cannot be enriched. The main object of all rotation should therefore be, to establish sueh a series of crops as would prevent the too Frequenttrecurrence ofaany one of these which are considered exhaust ing.
