    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 importance of the native tea cultivation in the West Priangan Residency, situated in the south-western part of Java, was demonstrated by the fact that approximately 45 % of the total production of 25 million kg dry tea in 1926 was prepared from leaves bought from native planters, the rest originating from estates.

There were booms in prices paid to native planters through severe competition among buying firms at certain times. At slack periods there was an extreme fall in price.

To improve this situation a purchase system was devised which guaranteed tea merchants sufficient raw material of a consistently good quality at a reasonable price and guaranteed native planters a sufficient outlet for their product Ott a price related to the price of dry tea on the world market.

The trading risk previously borne exclusively by the native planter was now more fairly spread.
