REPRINT:
Wholesale markets. Planning and design manual

FAO Agricultural Services Bulletin No. 90
Rome, 1991 (first edition), 2003 (this reprint), 216 pp.
ISBN 92-5-103107-X
ISSN 1010-1365
TC/M/T0521/E
$21.00


Wholesale marketing systems for fruit, vegetables and other fresh foodstuffs, such as livestock and fish, are often inadequate. They neither maximize benefits to producers, nor to consumers. Experience demonstrates that there are substantial benefits to be gained from giving positive encouragement to the development of more professional approaches to the provision of marketing infrastructure where wholesalers can purchase produce from large numbers of assembled farmers, or their agents, and in turn sell their purchases to retailers. This manual has been compiled to provide a systematic methodology based on the sequence of steps normally adopted in the development process. The manual should be of practical value, both to senior professionals and to technicians, in undertaking marketing and engineering surveys, in the preparation of feasibility studies and master plans, and in formulating proposals for the provision of physical facilities.

Preparation of foot-and-mouth disease contingency plans

FAO Animal Health Manual No. 16

Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is one of the most serious transboundary animal diseases. It is a highly contagious viral disease, and may have rapid and unanticipated national and international spread. Although not a very lethal disease for adult animals, it can cause crippling socio-economic consequences, through high production and trade losses. This manual provides information on the nature of FMD and the principles and strategic options for its prevention, control and elimination. Guidelines are provided for individual countries threatened by FMD to formulate their overall national policy on control and eradication of a possible incursion of the disease.

Agriculture, food and water. A contribution to the World Water Development Report

Rome, 2003, 70 PP.
ISBN 92-5-104943-2
ISSN 0258-6150
TC/M/Y4683/E
$24.00


Producing our daily food requires one thousand times more water than we use to drink and one hundred times more than we use to meet our basic need. Agriculture is the major source of food and by far the largest consumer of water on the globe. How can more food be produced with the same amount of water? How does food security connect to poverty and water use? These and many other question are discussed in this publication, a slightly modified version of Chapter 8 of the UN World Water Developmet Report (published jointly in 2003 by UNESCO and Berghahn Books).

Aquaculture development. 1. Good aquaculture feed manufacturing practice

FAO Technical Guidelines for Responsible Fisheries No. 5 Suppl. 1
Rome, 2003, 74 pp.
ISBN 92-5-604613-X
ISSN 1020-833X

The guidelines in this series were compiled for FAO in support of Article 9 of the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (CCRF) concerning Aquaculture Development, and in particular in support of Article 9.4.3 of the CCRF concerning the selection and use of feeds and additives. The guidelines cover a range of issues, ranging from ingredient purchasing, processing, bulk storage, handling, monitoring and documentation, to issues such as employee training and safety, customer relations and the delivery of finished goods to the farmer. However, issues relating to the handling and management of manufactured aquaculture feeds by farmers on the farm are not covered here, as these will be considered within separate guidelines to be produced at a later date concerning good on-farm feed management practices.
