Preparation of handbooks and technical publications
We accept commissions to prepare high quality technical books, handbooks and guidebooks for the cultivation of tropical tree crops, upland agriculture and lowland improvement. Some of our past publications have been translated from English into Thai, Bahasa Indonesia, Vietnamese, Spanish, Hindi, and Chinese.
We recognise the importance of providing technical information in an attractive layout including illustrations and photographs to support concise, clear and cogent text.
