Like its predecessors, this third revised edition of the Agricultural Compendium is packed with a wealth of statistical and general information about almost every aspect of agriculture in the tropics and subtropics.
"Anyone in tropical rural development, whether in a technical capacity or as an economist/planner making use of technical results, would both save themselves time and increase their understanding and efficiency through possession of this compendium. It is not only a reference volume but potentially a major contribution to mutual understanding and therefore communication between different disciplines." commented Soil Survey and Land Evaluation after the publication of an earlier edition.
Numerous sections (e.g. Chapter 7, Part B - Fisheries) and even complete chapters (e.g. Chapter 3, Geodosy; Chapter 10, Sociology) have been rewritten for the present edition. A number of new sections have also been added (e.g. in Chapter 3, a section on remote sensing techniques). Furthermore, in view of the now common use of scientific pocket calculators and personal computers, a number of graphs have been replaced by the original formulae.
