Managing the pollination needs of crops

“Insect Pollination of Crops”

The book by John Free, “Insect Pollination of Crops”, the most recently published compendium on crop pollination, has been out-of-print for many years. The author and publisher have given FAO permission to reproduce the book electronically.

You can browse the book by chapter (largely organised around crop plant families), or search by the crop names included in the PIMS database. The book covers other non-food crops as well; reference to these additional crops and other topics can be found by viewing the plant, animal, author and general indices in the annexes of the book.
