Empirical study of lettuce and cabbage marketing in Ghana: Trade, channels and distribution
Publication Date: October 24, 2011
This book examines the distribution pathway of lettuce (Lactuca sativa) and cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata) produced in Accra, Ghana from the primary stages of production to the final stages of distribution in the retail sector and to the final consumer. The book covers gaps in the existing marketing channels of lettuce and cabbage trade, proposes how the associated constraints could be solved to better protect the chain, and explores the application of the findings in other contexts. It presupposes a thorough understanding of the social, cultural, ecological and economic factors shaping lettuce and cabbage production in Ghana. The material included in this book is considered to be of immense value and interest to advisors as well as those concerned with lettuce and cabbage research, development including production and marketing as a whole.

Approaches to Halt and Reverse Land Degradation in Kenya: Agroforestry Development and Environmental Sustainability
Publication Date: September 3, 2010
This book is an interesting, thoroughly researched, and well-written case study using a multidisciplinary approach, involving both biophysical and social sciences, in addition to integrated views of researchers, policy-makers and farmers. It covers an important research topic, given the high and increasingly wide-spread malnutrition and famine, degradation of eco-systems, with recession of forests and pastures, and wind erosion of vast quantities of soil in the drylands. Overall, the book provides valuable new information of the lives of rural people in general; the success of local people's priority tree species most apt to halt and reverse land degradation, generate income, catalyse more sustainable land-use practices, and enhance increased and sustained food production. This book is especially useful for environmentalists, research scientists, extension agents, consultants, policy-makers and planners dealing with issues in natural resources management, land use change, and sustainable restoration and rehabilitation of degraded ecosystems in arid and semi-arid lands.
