First published in 1977, this book - now fully updated and available once more - offers you the best introduction to a wide range of both common and lesser-known specialty grains and related field crops, from corn, wheat, and rye, to buckwheat, millet, spelt, flax and even beans & sunflowers. Logsdon opens up our eyes to a whole world of plants that we wrongly assume only the agricultural “big boys” can grow. He succinctly covers all the basics, from planting and dealing with all the pests, weeds, and diseases to harvesting, processing, storing, and using whole grains. There are even a few recipes sprinkled throughout.
