English | ISBN: 1845937538 | 2011 | PDF | 236 pages | 4,2 MB
Sustainable crop production is vital to ensure that supplies of fresh vegetables and their products are readily available. However, food security still remains a huge problem in areas of the world, including the tropics and sub-tropics, where communities rely solely on subsistence farming to meet their day-to-day food demands.
It is evident that food production needs to become more sustainable to ensure economic stability and poverty reduction. With this in mind, Tropical Vegetable Production addresses the problems surrounding vegetable production in developing countries. Divided into two parts, this volume discusses first the principles and practice of tropical vegetable production, from site selection, security and management to seeds, crop preparation and pesticides, and second, provides details of those crops which are of particular importance in developing countries.
