    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.

A description was given of the geology, topography, vegetation, climate and other characteristics of the Barito watershed in Borneo with a classification of soils and agricultural regions. For the lowlands and swamps wet rice cultivation was used as a criterion. Details were given of rice growing and its adaptation to the specific conditions of these lowlands and swamps, some of which were tidal.

An analysis was given of the population, its composition, origin and social and economic characteristics, the relation of agricultural and cultural phases of the population, and the function and working of the agricultural advisory service. This service succeeded in restoring local institutions to organize provisional water boards and encourage wet rice cultivation. The advisory service also promoted rural handicrafts.

More local participation was needed from the beginning in all development efforts, such as reclamation, irrigation and drainage projects, to develop self reliance and initiative. There were great opportunities for rural development even on lands earlier classified unsuitable for commercial agriculture. A soil survey of the main agricultural regions was urgently needed. 3 maps were added.
