About this book

This publication not only describes the processes by which a variety of plant fibres are extracted, but also provides background information on the growing areas, soil, and climatic requirements and methods of harvesting.

This handbook presents no-nonsense introductory information for those working to help the rural poor in developing countries generate income. Almost every tropical and sub-tropical vegetable fiber (hemp to abaca) for rope, twine, and baskets. Learn about extraction, grading and processing. Includes elegant drawings and access information for equipment suppliers in the Phillippines, India, Columbia, Northern Ireland, and the UK, and ag-research organizations in a dozen countries. --Whole Earth Magazine
