Dr. Adam Clarke's Account of an Agricultural Experiment
Adam Clarke, Millbrook
Agriculture, Experiment, Providence
Describes the cultivation of hundreds of plants from three grains of wheat, by means of off-sets. Avers that, had it not been for the destruction of some of the crop by various causes, the result of the experiment would 'have astonished the most scientific agriculturists in Europe' (574).
