This much-needed book brings together a wealth of information--most of which is presented in English for the first time--on a wide range of tropical fruit crops with economic potential in South-East Asia. The book begins with background data on the ecosystems and production systems that exist throughout the region. Detailed descriptions of the classification, characteristics, development, and propagation of tropical fruits follow, along with an examination of orchard establishment techniques and management. The book also focuses on the structural characteristics of tropical fruit crops and on the development of major commercial enterprises that serve both the domestic and international markets. It goes on to detail problems facing the industry as a whole, describing remedial measures--such as pest control, plant protection against diseases, weed control, drainage and irrigation, post-harvest technology, and mechanization--that can counter setbacks now and in the future. Finally, the book reviews issues that will play a major role in South-East Asian tropical fruit production in the twenty-first century. Copiously illustrated and extremely wide-ranging, The Production of Economic Fruits in South-East Asia is required reading for all students, specialists, commercial producers, and rural development specialists interested in the subject.
