Abstract

It may be interesting to the Society to have a record of the
results of certain experiments recently carried on under my
directions within the Domain in a paddock which has been
under cultivation for several years.
The object of these experiments was, in the first place, to
ascertain the effect produced by under-draining the land;
and, in the second, to decide upon the best mode of planting
potatoes,—that is, the mode by which any given area of
land could be made to produce the most profitable crop.
