This guide, which is intended for agricultural technicians, presents the criteria for choosing shelters for use in tropical zones, open soil and soilless cropping techniques and the principles of integrated pest management. It goes on to describe cultivation of 9 main vegetable species: choice of varieties, cycle length, yields, water requirements, main pests and diseases. There are colour plates to help with identifying pests. A list of the products used for IPM, with recommendations for their use, is given in an annex.
