Simple information manuals AGRODOKS are a series of low-priced, simple manuals on agricultural practices in the tropics which are produced by AGROMISA in conjunction with CTA, who finance the translation of the booklets. Agrodok 7, on Goat keeping in the tropics, is designed as a first-aid kit for those who live in isolated places and cannot easily diagnose a disease or have an analysis made of feed quality. The book covers goat breeding; raising and selection; nutrition; housing; health, diseases and parasites; goat products; and administration. A list of helpful literature is included together with useful appendices that deal with units of feed values, an example of how to calculate rations, hoof care, castration of young billy-goats, age estimation, and examples of how to keep a record card on individual goats (male as well as female) and a servicing record. Agrodok 18 deals with Protection of stored grains and pulses; it is a revised edition of the earlier Protection of stored products against insects and fungi. This booklet deals with the problems concerning losses of stored products by storage pests (moulds, insects and rodents), and is meant as a manual for those who are involved with providing information on storage to farmers and cooperatives. Descriptions of the main storage pests are given, together with preventative practices. Special attention is given to the use of natural materials in protecting storage products but there is also information on chemical treatment of stored products against pests. All sections of the books are well illustrated with simple explanatory line drawings. Beekeeping in the tropics (Agrodoc 32), first published in June 1977, was revised for the third time last year. Similarly, The preparation of dairy products, first published in 1985, was also revised last year.
