Abstract

THE plan for mechanized production of groundnuts in East Africa described in the recent White Paper (Cmd. 7030) and the inherent importance of all oleaginous crops to-day give added interest to an informative and well-documented review of oil plants in East Africa by A. Glendon Hill, director of the East African Agricultural Research Institute (E. Afr. Agric. J., 12, 140; 1947). It deals with ground-nuts, sesame and sunflower.
