Look inside the book:
To give some clear idea of the value of Tull's advocacy of drill-husbandry and the freedom from weed which can alone be obtained by the use of the drill, Pg 9 I may mention that so far as statistics will allow, I have ascertained the average yield of the wheat crop of the world, and I am able to say that the average yield is less than it is at the present time upon my permanent wheat land, after more than sixty years absolutely without manure. ...For if, on the one hand, his drill-ploughs are the models from which have been derived the marvellous agricultural machines of modern times, then, on the other, his clean husbandry, his seed selection, his deep and constant tillage are the fundamental principles in the great new science of dry-farming. ...The historian of this period has left us an account of the most popular toasts at these annual banquets, such as 'A Fine Fleece and a Fat Carcase,' 'The Plough and a Good Use of It,' while the tribute to Coke's efforts to enclose all waste lands always brought down the house, for it wittily ran: 'The Enclosing of all Waists,' and Coke's own toast 'Live and Let Live,' was invariably greeted with tumultuous applause.
