Beschreibung

The fourth edition of this highly regarded book has been considerably enlarged to cover all aspects of cocoa production. Higher prices for cocoa have led to much new knowledge about the plant and changes to its methods of production. These are discussed, along with new problems that have occurred and the fresh research projects that have been needed.

G A R Wood, B.A. (Cantab), D. T. A.(Trinidad) had over 30 years experience of cocoa growing as a Tropical Agricultural Adviser and as a Cocoa Consultant. He was editor of 'Cocoa Growers' Bulletin from its first issue in 1963 until 1980 and was a much respected authority on the crop.

R A Lass, B.Sc. (Agric), D.T.A.(Trinidad) is currently Cocoa technical Manager for Cadbury Schweppes plc and editor of 'Cocoa Growers' Bulletin'. He is involved in many international cocoa research and extension projects in various cocoa-growing areas and has been employed as consultant by a wide variety of international agencies.

Klappentext
Reprinted due to continuing demand, the fourth edition of this highly regarded book covers all aspects of cocoa production in considerable detail. There is sustained interest in the crop, as a globally traded commodity, and the subject of much research into new methods of its production and processing.

Cocoa contains comprehensive chapters covering the history and botany of the crop and all aspects of cocoa agronomy and crop protection. The book also includes full details of post harvest matters, quality control, marketing, production, cocoa product manufacture and consumption.

Cocoa is an essential reference for anyone working with the crop, including agricultural scientists, and food scientists and technologists. Libraries in food companies and in all universities and research establishment where agricultural science and food science and technology are studied or taught should have copies of this important landmark publication on their shelves.

Tropical Agriculture Series

The fourth edition of this highly-regarded book has been completely re-written and considerably enlarged to cover all aspects of cocoa production in greater detail than before.

Since the publication of the successful third edition in 1975, the higher prices for cocoa have led to new interest in it as a commercial crop, especially in Brazil and Malaysia. This in turn has led to much new knowledge about the plant, and changes in the methods of its production as well as some new problems to which research ahs been devoted.

All of these changes are reflected in this latest edition of Cocoa, making it of far greater use and value to commercial growers as well as research and extension workers.
