Forages: The Science of Grassland Agriculture, 6th Edition is the long-awaited revision of the classic reference that serves as a comprehensive supplement to An Introduction to Grassland Agriculture. The new edition has broadened its scope and is newly re-organized into ten major sections that extensively cover the field of forage agriculture. Chapter authors are leading researchers and authorities in grassland agriculture who emphasize quantifiable information that lends itself to comparative analysis. An extensive list of references, suggested further reading, glossary, and a thorough index complete the book's value as a single-source reference.
