A detailed work on efficient strategies in agriculture.
Layton Cooke was a land and timber surveyor. In this work, he presents numerous tables which relate to agricultural efficiency and improvement along with explanations of each table. Some of the tables show various expenses of labor in relation to implements, such as the expense of "making ditches of various dimensions" or "the manual labour in working an acre with implements of different widths."
