FAO Plant Production and Protection PapersThe first version of this manual was printed in 1997 as a working document with the aim of consolidating the procedures used by the FAO Panel of experts on pesticide residues. Since then there have been many developments in the scientific evaluation process of the Joint Meeting on Pesticide Residues (JMPR), administrated by FAO and the World Health Organization. The present manual incorporates a

Series: FAO Animal Production and Health PapersIn facing ever more limited resources and changing market conditions and in the attempt to enhance productivity for strengthening livelihoods, many technologies have been used to improve feed use and animal performance at the faro level. A particularly successful example, in terms of both geographic range of use and relative simplicity in formulation and preparation, is the urea-molasses mu
Series: FAO Animal Production and Health PapersThis publication describes the national programme on animal production based on crop residues, which has been the base of the rapid development of the ruminant sector in China during the last decade. The use of crop residues, as the most abundant and widely spread fodder resources, has been regarded as the turning point to resolve the feed problem of the country.
Series: FAO Animal Production and Health PapersThis publication is a guide to sustainable domestic goose production. Geese have a number of inherent advantages: they can consume and digest large amounts of high fibre and low-quality feed; they are easy to manage; and their rapid growth renders them one of the most efficient sources for meat production. In addition, feathers/down and fatty liver are valuable by-products, while their stro

Where the mulberry grows naturally and where sericulture is well established, its foliage and the production residues are regularly fed to livestock. However, its intensive cultivation and use specifically for animal production only

Series: FAO Plant Production and Protection SeriesMaize will continue to play a major role in food security in the future and demand for grain maize for animal feeding will increase greatly in the years to come. To cope with future demand, farmers in the tropics will have to boost their maize production and productivity. "Tropical maize, improvement and production" was prepared by maize specialists and former scientists of the Internati
