Beef production in the tropics: a new Agromisa handbook


Currently Agromisa is working on an Agrodok that deals with beef production in the tropics. The author, Gijs den Hertog, stresses the need to understand the physical and nutritional needs of the herd and discusses the factors that inhibit reproduction and growth. Read more on this new Agrodok.



Students from STOAS do internship with Agromisa

Ten students following the Bachelor of Education and Knowledge Management in the Green Sector course at STOAS Vilentum, Wageningen, developed lessons on an agricultural subject of their choice for Agromisa between February and June 2015. The groups produced lessons on Etnoveterinary medicines and How to make natural pesticides.

A new approach to developing Agrodoks

For the development of new Agrodoks it was decided this should be preceded by a feasibility study to identify:
  • the demand for this type of information within the Agrodok target group;
  • the organisations that need these publications and who actually use them;
  • where Agromisa can find the funding needed for the development and publication of new titles

Agromisa has approached students studying agricultural and communication subjects at WUR, VHL and STOAS to find answers to these questions.
