Crop Production in Tropical Africa
Only very rarely do you come across a standard work on agriculture which you simply must have on your solid bookshelf as a reference guide. The Belgian Directorate General for International Cooperation (DGCI) recently published such a sturdy work on tropical crops and trees in sub-Saharan Africa. It groups the plants per kind: cotton and kenaf in the fibre crops chapter; cassava and yam in the roots and tubers and cocoa section; coffee and tea in the stimulant crops section, and so on. Each plant and its uses are described extensively in about 10 pages. There are also short guides to each sub-Saharan country. Over 1,500 pages, attractively laid out and easy to read, not at one sitting though, just whenever needed. A book to always have at hand, or at least to go home to. It is the size and weight of a brick. Crop Production in Tropical Africa Coordinated by R H Raemaekers, DGCI, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, 2001. 1540 pp. ISBN 90 806822 2 5 Available free-of-charge in English and French upon written request by email only.
