If you want to buy a tractor anywhere in the world, you won't find much difficulty in gathering a colourful array of technical brochures; but if you need to know how to chose the right tree-seedling planter, or you need a machine to slice cassava, you may have to go a long way to find help. Unless, that is, you have at hand the latest (1985) edition of 'Tools for Agriculture'. Developed over the last 20 years, this book is in a class of its own as a 'Buyer's Guide' for Third World agriculture. Although the book is packed with practical information, photos, line drawings and tables you will find it easy to locate the information you require, thanks to the careful thought that has been given to meeting the reader's requirements. Apart from a general updating, this new edition includes much more information on livestock production equipment; and there are new sections on wool harvesting and beekeeping. Ultimately, it is the farmer, together with his advisers, who must make the effective choice of appropriate agricultural equipment. Armed with this book they will stand a much greater chance of getting it right first time. Tools for Agriculture: a buyer s guide to appropriate equipment''. Third edition. 1985.
