Cocoyams Taro and Tannia are important food crop in the tropical world. Beyond their food and nutritious values, they have cultural, religious and social meanings which vary within cultures. As with most tropical underutilized crops, cocoyam is affected by biotic and abiotic stresses resulting to low yield.

Hopefully, the analyses in this report, prepared jointly by the International Potato Center CIP and the International Food Policy Research Institute IFPRI , will help give these crops appropriate consideration in future deliberations about the global food system at the national and international levels and thereby improve efforts to ensure access to sufficient food and income for all people.

The assessment of past trends, future prospects, and policy options reported here stems from the tradition of joint studies of roots and tubers in developing countries by the centers of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research CGIAR. While this report builds on that previous collaboration, it also represents the first intercenter effort to produce future projections of demand and supply for these crops.

The focus of the work also expanded to include cassava and yam. In so doing, this report became the empirical foundation of a broader effort aimed at documenting not just trends and projections but also describing research activities and organizations with the overall objective of providing a vision for research on roots and tubers in the CGIAR. Gregory J.

Scott, Mark W. Rosegrant, and Claudia Ringler have synthesized a significant amount of data and information on roots and tubers in an effort to provide a clearer vision of their past, present, and future roles in the food systems of developing countries. How the production and use of these commodities have changed and will continue to change over time are all the more important to understand because of the contribution they make to the diets and income-generating activities of the rural and urban poor in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

This paper provides a fuller understanding of the prospects of roots and tubers for food, feed, and other uses in developing countries in the decades ahead. In that regard, the authors note that cassava, potato, sweetpotato, and yam will remain important commodities in the coming years, particularly in many of those poorer regions and countries that merit broader international support in their efforts to increase food production, reduce rural pov- erty, and improve food security while protecting the environment.

We owe special appreciation to Rupert Best of the International Center for Tropical Agriculture CIAT for his comments and corrections on the various preliminary versions of this docu- ment and for supplying abundant source material on cassava in developing countries. We particularly wish to thank Luis Maldonado and Victor Suarez for their work on several of the historical statistical tables.

Greg also would like to acknowledge Princess Ferguson for her editorial support in preparing the numerous preliminary drafts of this report and Jo Sears for her help in completing the final version. We are grateful to Roberta Gerpacio and Nicostrato Perez for their work on earlier versions of this report.

They contributed both model runs and written documents. We would also like to thank C.

Alternative soil management practices like organic farming assume significance in the context of climate change for safe food production. Yams white yam, greater yam and lesser yam and edible aroids elephant foot yam EFY , taro and tannia are tuberous vegetables with good taste and nutritive value. Six field experiments were conducted at the ICAR-Central Tuber Crops Research Institute, Thiruvananthapuram, India, over a decade — to compare the varietal response, yield, quality and soil properties under organic vs conventional system and develop a learning system. The elite and local varieties of EFY and taro and the three species of yams, including trailing and dwarf genotypes, responded equally well to both the systems. The tuber quality was improved with higher dry matter, starch, crude protein, K, Ca and Mg contents. Physico-chemical and biological properties of soil were favoured and the organic system scored a significantly higher soil quality index.

Characterization of cocoyam Xanthosoma spp. The present study assessed the physical, chemical, functional, and microbiological properties of cocoyam Xanthosoma spp. The flour was initially submitted to a water-soaking process in order to reduce its high oxalate content. The soaked flour showed a high dietary fiber content The anti-nutritional component analysis showed low levels of oxalate 5.

Бринкерхофф покачал головой. Человек ничего не сказал, задумался на мгновение, а потом обратился к Сьюзан. - Лиланд Фонтейн, - представился он, протягивая руку.  - Я рад, что вы живы-здоровы. Сьюзан не отрывала глаз от директора.

 - Стратмор положил трубку. Сьюзан стояла, завернувшись в мохнатое полотенце, не замечая, что вода капает на аккуратно сложенные веши, приготовленные накануне: шорты, свитер - на случай прохладных вечеров в горах, - новую ночную рубашку. Расстроенная, она подошла к шкафу, чтобы достать чистую блузку и юбку. Чрезвычайная ситуация. В шифровалке. Спускаясь по лестнице, она пыталась представить себе, какие еще неприятности могли ее ожидать.

 - Да-да, я и ищу спутницу.  - Беккер понял, что совершил какой-то промах. - Да, наше агентство предоставляет сопровождающих бизнесменам для обедов и ужинов. Вот почему мы внесены в телефонный справочник.

Ни у кого не вызывало сомнений, что Стратмор любит свою страну. Он был известен среди сотрудников, он пользовался репутацией патриота и идеалиста… честного человека в мире, сотканном из лжи.
