How to Farm with Dynamite

Dynamite Farming
I have often fantasized about using the destructive power of dynamite on a troublesome tree stump or two, always to be brought back to planet earth by comments like "That would be dangerous!" and "Where are we going to get dynamite from around here?" Thanks to the good people at Dupont you can educate yourself on the facts about farming with dynamite by reading this very informative and well written booklet.

Turns out it wasn't all that dangerous after all, and there's a lot more you can do on the farm then just blow up tree stumps. I won't spoil your fun by listing those goodies here, instead I want to direct you to the place where I found this valuable information. The home site of John Walker. This guy has been on the web since 1994! and has just earned a spot on my top 100 sites of all time. Eclectic would be a big understatement in attempting to explain all the wonderful information he shares.
