E-Book: Principles of Field Crop Production

Field crops have been pivotal to the progress of agriculture in this country. That will be the case moving forward. The heavy emphasis on principles in the book provides readers with a good basis to evaluate new crops and varieties and their place in cropping systems.

This publication has been the main Australian agronomy textbook for university students since 1980. There have been five editions in that time and this latest, electronic edition is able to be downloaded for free.

Each chapter is an independent pdf file that allows downloading only of the chapters of interest. Over time, individual chapters will be revised and updated as the need arises.
