The Clifton Park System Of Farming

Elliot, Robert

Original publication date: 1943
Original publisher: London: Faber and Faber Ltd
Publication status: Public domain


Originally published in 1898 as Agricultural Changes, Elliot’s thesis was soon broadened by Sir Albert Howard, Newman Turner, Louis Bromfield, etc. Elliot developed a system of laying down land to grass, dependent on little input except a complex mixture of deep-rooting pasture seeds. The pasture would be turned under after four to eight years, row crops grown until the humus levels declined to a threatening level, and then the field would be restored to grass/clover/herbal mixtures. There is a very interesting forward by Sir R. George Stapledon.
