Columella

Columella was a retired army officer from Gades who later became a farmer in Italia. He wrote another Roman work On Landed Estates in twelve books and the book On Arboriculture.

Most useful in seeing the changes in agriculture between the Republic and the Empire when compared to Cato and Varro. "He allows very readily, that the eyes and footsteps of the master are things most salutary to the land."
