A Note-Book of Tropical Agriculture

Nature volume 142, page 776 (29 October 1938) | Download Citation



THIS is a small book that can be wholeheartedly recommended. It is a development of a small compilation which the author made while he was in India, and now he has added the results of his experience in Africa and in the West Indies. Of course, many of the data given have no special reference to the tropics, but the really valuable part of the book is that dealing with tropical materials and especially with tropical crops, about which it is somewhat difficult to get information. The book cannot fail to be of value to all who are proceeding to positions connected with agriculture in any part of the tropics.
