Annual Report of the Director of the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station for the Year 1931If public research seems costly, one may well consider how much more expensive and frequently impossible is research on the part of the in dividual farmer. And if public research seems inconclusive at times, it must be remembered that the observations of lone and untrained men would be hopelessly so. Civilization is committed to the laboratory and to trained research, and the pathway ahead out of economic de pression would only be the darker if they were withdrawn.The past year has seen several important projects to a stage where conclusions could be drawn, among them, our economic fruit farm studies, the survey of Grafton County dairy farms, Boston milk con sumption study, contact-insecticide project, study of root growth of white pine, studies in human nutrition, land utilization study, spray residues project, head lettuce investigation, etc. The following pages will give some details as to the significant results of the year.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
