It begins with Len Daniell, who tried to interest the Government in providing an aircraft for trials in 1926, and ends with an industry poised on the brink of change. Explains how aircraft and aviators flew out onto the farm and fertilised vast areas of unproductive land from the air, an achievement unparalleled in modern agriculture, and significant in the history of world aviation." - dust jacket.
