    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

The history of government-owned coffee plantations formed three periods: under the Dutch East Indian Company and the Commissaries General, during the 'Cultuurstelsel' (Culture system), and after 1905. The history of indigenous coffee cultivation formed two periods: during the 'dwangstelsel' (forced-labour system) and since 'dwangstelsel'.

The present coffee areas, their climate and their relevant geomorphology, geology, pedology and plant-sociology were described. The native methods for Coffea robusta L. and Coffea arabica L. were each discussed. Agricultural problems deserving special attention were selection methods, shading, intensive measures (weeding, pruning, stumping, soil fertilization, green-manuring, wind protection, the control of Stephanoderes hampei which attacks beans, harvesting method, other bean constituents, seed inspection, and reforestation.

It was concluded that the native coffee growing was still in the beginning of its development. Although scientific research already started some decades earlier, many problems remained to be solved, also for the European enterprises. The management analyses made by the Division of Agricultural Economy in 1930 would be of great help in elucidating problems concerning indigenous plantations and in planning further improvements. Extension had to give further assistance.
