The first part of the book, which assumes an elementary knowledge of agriculture, biology, and allied sciences, covers in detail the methods best suited to the cultivation of crops in the wet tropics.  It advocates the use of intensive systems of agriculture which are less destructive to the environment and produce greater yields per acre than do extensive systems.  Part 2 gives a comprehensive survey of the crops themselves including their botanical characteristics and their agronomy.  A glossary of technical terms is included.
