posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by David Midmore
Principles of Tropical Horticulture’, a 450 page book, leads the reader through a background of environmental influences, plant physiology and plant breeding, to an understanding of production and post-harvest systems, environmental adaptations and marketing strategies. Focusing on the principles behind production and post-harvest methods as practiced in the tropics, and on their scientific basis, rather than on detailed biological traits of each crop, this text outlines successes and failures in practices to date and sets out how the quantity and quality of horticultural produce can improve in the future. Case studies are frequently used and chapters cover the production and postharvest management of tropical vegetable, fruit and cut flower crops, plus temperate-zone crops adapted to grow in the tropics.
