CTA Practical Guides to agricultural practices

CTA has produced a series of practical guides on agricultural practices. These guidebooks will be of interest to many small-scale farmers. Topics include soil improvement, livestock rearing, food processing and storage, and others. Each guide is colourful and includes illustrations and easy-to-follow directions.

The guides are available in English, French, Portuguese, and Kiswahili. Below, we have provided links to electronic copies of the English guides. To find guides in other languages, and to find out how to order printed copies of the guides, visit: http://cta.esmarthosting.net/ [1].
