In this post we will see a book titled Vegetable Growing In Home Gardens of Tropical and Subtropical Areas by P. F. Konokov and V. Kiran.
About the book:
As the descriptive name suggests the book covers in detail how to grow vegetables in your kitchen garden. …there are wide regions in the tropics where amateur vegetable gardening has its own specific features. To fill this gap we delivered courses of lectures between the years 1967 and 1986 on “Vegetable Cultivation and Production in the Tropics’ to the students of the Department of Agriculture at the P. Lumumba Peoples’ Friendship University and published a textbook entitled “Vegetable Growing in Home Gardens of Tropical and Subtropical Areas” in 1984, which is now available in English from MIR Publishers.
The book was translated from the Russian by S. Sukharev and first published by Mir Publishers in 1988.
Thanks to Karen H. for this book.
