Tucker   Review #291 - Dated: 20th of June, 2004
  Author: Tucker

Hell, I don't even do an agricultural course, or have any real interest in it. Someone brought this book into where I work and asked me to photocopy some pages. While doing that, I took a flick through it and actually found I understood enough of it to realise that this is a very valuable publication to the NZ farming community, and any industry that plans to use medium-large scale agricultural techniques.

So, from a layman's point of view, I was really impressed. And not at all surprised that such a quality publication was written by a highly qualified Kiwi. We just rock, as a country.

Overall, a very interesting, informative, and practical book. No pun intended. :)
