"In the following pages an attempt will be made to explain, on established principles, the processes that accompany the cultivation and amelioration of the soil ... By the adoption of a new line of investigation, exemplified in the following Treatise, light has not only been thrown on the action and effects of the manures at present employed, but the uses of other substances, and methods of combining and preparing them, have been discovered; from which there are just grounds to believe a valuable addition will accrue to the present stock of Agricultural Knowledge" (Introduction).
