Good textbooks on tropical agriculture usually have a high price-tag. This is because they can take several years to produce, as they must be written by eminent persons who have other demands on their time, and because authoritative texts on specific topics have limited readership. Although they : will have been written with the needs of developing countries in mind, too many copies either end their days in the developed countries of the West or remain as unsold stock. The excellence of the Longman's Tropical agriculture series has been recognized since the 1950s. New titles are still being added, and the earlier titles have been revised several times. Despite the attractiveness and availability of these books, cost considerations have limited their distribution in ACP countries. We are pleased to inform readers that a purchasing agreement with the publisher has now been concluded which will enable CTA to make the following titles available to potential readers in ACP countries: Tropical agriculture series \B7 Sorghum H Doggett \B7 Introduction to animal husbandry in the tropics G Williamson and W J A Payne \B7 The oil palm C W S Hart/ey \B7 Coffee G Wrigley \B7 Cotton J M Munro \B7 Cocoa G A R Wood and R A Lass \B7 Oilseed crops E A Weiss \B7 Tropical grassland husbandry L V Crowder and H R Chheda \B7 Spices Vol. I J W Pursglove et al \B7 Tropical fruit J A Samson \B7 Sugar cane F M Blackburn \B7 Bananas R M Stover and N W Simmonds \B7 Rice D H Grist Other agriculture titles \B7 Vegetable seed production R A T George \B7 Seed production of agricultural crops A F Kelly \B7 Cotton insect pests and their management G A Mathews \B7 The potato W G Burton \B7 The persisting ecological constraints of tropical agriculture W Weischet and C Caviedes \B7 Climate, water and agriculture in the tropics I J Jackson For further information please write to CTA.
