Bananas and plantains by J C Robinson 1995 256pp price UKL19.95 ISBN 0 85198 9853 available from: CAB International Wallingford, Oxon OX10 8DE, UK
Provides an accessible review of the scientific principles of banana production and relates these to field practices. Although the focus is on commercial Cavendish banana production, plantains are also discussed where relevant. The author makes interesting comparisons between commercial banana production in the tropics and in the subtropics where different climates necessitate different management techniques. Overall, the book provides a concise but broad textbook, suitable for students and non-specialist research workers and professionals in horticulture, agronomy and food science.
