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 scope for co-operatives for fruit marketing was considered in view of the development of orchards from kitchen gardens to commercial production, with fewer types of fruit trees or even monoculture. Such specialization had not then proceeded far, so that little fruit was supplied by each grower and it varied widely in quality in the markets. Much fruit was sold on the tree, representing a considerable credit. Fruit was an important source of ready money for the farmers either as producers or as middlemen. A review was given of fruitmarketing co-operatives in the world with special reference to the United States and the Netherlands.The possible task and conditions for co-operatives in the Netherlands East Indies were considered but the author concluded that difficulties of standardization, credit and managerial skill were still almost insurmountable. Yet co-operatives could have been of great help to improve the status of the growers.
