Excerpt from Principles of Farm Practice
Principles of Farm Practice is written with the fundamental fact in mind that Agriculture teaching, like agricultural life, must be lived from day to day. Instruction in theory and the accumula tion of facts are of little value in themselves. The textbook and teaching process that make the things taught part of the student's life, because of logical arrangement and practical application to every day afiairs, are alone worth while. Such it is hoped, the present book will prove to be.
In teaching such a primary subject as agriculture, it is well to keep in mind that food, clothing and shelter come first in the list of human wants. Until they are provided the people, either savage or civilized, will pay little attention to the other desirable things of life. If modern agricultural people, therefore, are to live well rounded lives they must first of all be put in a position to make a good living out of the land. In the United States about seventy-five percent of the nation's wealth comes immediately out of the land in one form or another. The farmers are the greatest wealth producers we have, although not the greatest wealth keepers; for, under the present system of agricultural organization the farmers are able to keep only a small part of this wealth for themselves. The schools must, accordingly, teach new things, not alone in agricultural production acre by acre, but also in how to prepare products for market and how to market them.
