This vintage book contains three essays on the subject of cover crops in fruit orchards. These timeless essays contain a wealth of practical information and useful tips, and are highly recommended for the modern farmer. Contents include: “Cover Crops in the Apple Orchard—F. A. Waugh”, “Cover Crops in the Peach Orchard—F. A. Waugh”, “Cover Crops—Fred Coleman Sears”. Frank Albert Waugh (1869 - 1943), was an American landscape architect whose career focused upon recreational uses of national forests, the production of a highly natural style of landscape design, and the implementation of ecological principles. Fred Coleman Sears (1866 - 1916), was a farmer and grower, best known for his writings on 'Productive Orcharding.' Many vintage texts such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
