Canadian Organic Growers, 292 pages, 9½x8, softcover. Starting with the general principles of organic production, the first sections discuss how to improve soil fertility, increase biodiversity and recycle resources, while farming productively. Gives sample crop rotations for different kinds of farms and a worksheet for determining the appropriate rotation for your farm. Covers when and how to plant specific crops, the nutrient requirements for each, weed and pest management, harvesting and cleaning, expected yield of seed and straw, the place of each in a good rotation, and suggestions for intercropping and overseeding. Although written for Canadian growers, all the information applies south of the border. They’ve even converted from metric to English units. -David Shipman
