Sir Albert Howard In India 1873-1947 an English botanist and organic farming pioneer. He worked for the British government in stationed in India from 1905-1939. During this period he did considerable work in cataloguing and improving the wheat and other crops in production across India (including present day Pakistan)

In this book examples include the important interaction of seemingly innocuous but leguminous weeds that existed amongst the wheat crops, The methodology of banks and ditches surrounding on average 4 or five acre plots, and in fact how white ants/termites even contribute to dramatically increasing the fertility of soils. He also cites the forgotten practise of potsherds or thikra being utilised as no till agriculture to increase soil fertility, a concept claimed as new in modern farming techniques but practised in the Punjab for centuries past.

I know when I purchased this book for the first time from a Southport antique dealer around twenty five years ago I was fascinated not only with the accurate historical data but how important and productive our traditional farming techniques really are. Nowadays its available online. It is scientifically technical and its contents focus on agricultural techniques but I found it very good in that respect.

Research material on Mughal landscape gardens across Pakistan/India/Middle East and how they are utilised now in the worldwide community.

There is significant content on archaeological excavations of the Mugahl gardens in Pakistan. there are also descriptions of current attempts to preserve some that are fast deteriorating. Photographs unfortunately are in black and white only.
