Your rating: None


This paper discusses the agricultural development of slopelands in Indonesia. Food production in such areas tends to be a high-input, high-risk activity. Current research is focussing on integrated farming systems based on tree crops and livestock, with only enough food production to meet local needs. Soil and water conservation are emphasized, and slopes are stabilized by bench terraces bordered by grasses and legumes, and by alley cropping with fast-growing legume trees.

The weevil is present in all provinces of Cuba, causing up to 45% damage in the absence of control measures.
