Natural Crop Protection in the Tropics
Letting Information Come to Life
The first edition of Natural Crop Protection was published in 1986 and has met wide acclaim. It has been translated into eight languages.
The most recent version of the book was published 2002 in English and French together with CTA, Wageningen.
On this website the book is presented in form of a detailed summary. The frame structure on the left side is correlated to the book‘s structure.
The book presents practical information on natural crop protection techniques. Recognizing that these techniques, which derive from local, traditional and scientific sources, often have to be verified, adapted or improved, the book includes a section on approaches and methodologies by presenting a number of case studies.
This concept has been chosen in order to link information on natural crop protection with approaches and methodologies. By presenting both technical information and case studies on Farmer Participatory Research the book lets this information come to life and thus supports the application for resource-poor and organic farmers.
The book intends to contribute to providing farmers and their advisors with the experience and confidence needed to make the best use of the resources available to them.
Valuable suggestions are also made for research to further improve engagement in developing natural crop protection practices for resource-poor and organic farmers.
