Crop Ecology, Cultivation And Uses Of Cactus Pear

Post Number:#1  Postby toditd » Fri Dec 22, 2017 9:57 pm

I've seen a few local news stories make mention of this recent UN published book. For example:
Could our prickly pear cactus save the world?

The book was published in November 2017 (it's actually an update of a previous 1995 publication) by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to support the promotion of Opuntia ficus-indica as a food and agricultural crop in times of climate change and increasing drought.

Everything you've ever wanted to know, and more, about Opuntia ficus-indica may be in this 200+ page book available in pdf. (Note: The following link is to a large pdf file.)
