    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 the grain trade was described. Since ancient times wheat had been dominant as the source of man's daily bread. In the middle of the 19th century trade in other grains increased with demand for feedstuffs in the production of meat and eggs, and with the use of cereals as raw material in numerous industries. Trade increased sharply with rising demand and with increasing production in new countries. World production reached its peak in the period 1925-30. This period however laid the basis for the agricultural crisis. After 1925 many European countries protected their own wheat production. The influence was described of methods of transport, technical improvements in agriculture and rising incomes of the consumers.
