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 origin and history of sugar-cane in the Dutch East Indies were described and consecutive phases of development of Indonesian agriculture were suggested. Cultivation and processing of native sugar-cane in the 1920's and some data on trade in sugar lumps were examined.The importance of native sugar-cane as a cash crop was stressed and needed encouragement rather than discouragement. There was some conflict between the native sugar industry in its infancy, still modest in size and technique, and the economically powerful Dutch sugar concerns with their elaborate plantations and factories. In close agreement with the Western sugar interests the Government policy favoured the status quo, both thwarting the extension of native enterprise and preventing any form of co-operation. The thesis condemned this policy and saw the common interest as the only safe solution in the future. A gradual transition was needed to a system where the local cane-growers could supply the large factories with cane for refining.
