a delight to read Review by Agricultural Science
Quality

Understanding the present dynamics in the production and marketing of 'organic' products is a complex issue. Thus, it is a delight to read this contribution from Victoria Shorrocks... Shorrocks provides an evenhanded, comprehensive analysis of the pros and cons of organic and conventional farming. Much of the value in the book is this unbiased treatment... This contribution by Shorrocks is ideal for students, researchers and farmers. It should be read by policy makers. And it will appeal also to consumers wanting to understand better how food is produced and grappling to understand the often-exaggerated claims made about both organic and conventional farming.

‘There is a lot of information in this wide-ranging book that will be of value to agricultural science students. I am sure it will also be useful to graduates of a few years standing seeking to keep themselves informed of new developments. It is an easy-to-read book and may find its way onto the coffee tables of those who want to be better informed about contentious agricultural topics that extend to aspects of human health. I found the layout used throughout of listing at the end of each chapter both the salient points made and the references used, particularly helpful.’ (Posted on 23/04/2018)
