T K Bose (Editor) V A Parthasarathy (Editor) P.K. Chattopadhyay (Editor)
Synopsis Plantation crops are of high commercial value and used by the people all over the world, but mainly grown in the tropical regions. The important plantation crops are coconut and oil palm (oil yielding crops); tea, coffee and cocoa (beverge crops); arecanut and betelvine (small holder’s crop); cashew (nut crop); rubber (industrial crop); bamboo (timer crop); Palmyra (under exploited plantation crop). Many of the plantation crops and their products are the major source of livelihood of rural population throughout the tropics and these crops also generate direct and indirect employment opportunities. This publication of about 1050 pages (in two volumes) provides an exhaustive and updated information based on world review of scientific literature on plantation crops. This comprehensive and well-illustrated book will serve ads an excellent text on plantation crops. Emphasis has been laid on some emerging topics like biotechnological approach to crop improvement, integrated management of pests and diseases, organic management, product diversification and value added products, and important research areas to be tacked in future. It is hoped that this book with current and complete scientific information will serve the interest of students, teachers, researchers, planters and extension specialists.
