From the Back Cover:

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 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.
