The most productive source, the Bibliography of Agriculture, indexed 466 or 48.5 percent of all citations and 282 or 39.2 percent of all unique citations. The greatest overlap occurred between the Bibliography of Agriculture and Forestry Abstracts: 123 citations or 26.4 percent of the total coverage represented by the Bibliography of Agriculture.
