Cambridge University Press UK 1996 23.5cm 339 crisp white pp & 800g for posting. Very useful review >>This book is a scholarly review of the many attempts, successful in some places (like Australia), unsuccessful in other areas, to use Medicago pastures (grazed by sheep) in rotation with "cereal" (grain) crops. This book provides a detailed and interesting historical review of various agricultural development programs throughout Australia and the Middle East. Example after example of how NOT to do things, along with a few inspiring success stories. Anybody interested in the relationships between agricultural "experts" and farmers, exporting agricultural practices to other countries, and evaluating agricultural export programs must read this book.
