Further Reading

Much of the best information on using green leaf crops is in out of print or hard to find books. Many of these can be located through university libraries or through inter-library loans. Sometimes out of print books can be purchased through large on-line booksellers, such as Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble. Most of the prices listed are taken from Amazon Books.
