Cultivation problems of the Cape Verde Islands with special reference to the island of Santo Antao



Courier Forschungsinstituts Senckenberg (95): 41-49



A review is presented of agronomic problems in Cape Verde, with special reference to the island of Santo Antao, which is important for agricultural production. Poor and badly distributed rainfall is the primary constraint to agricultural production, followed by erosion and pests. A list is presented of about 60 arthropod pests and their economic importance, arranged under the crops they infest, including maize, 12 kinds of vegetables, 6 kinds of fruits, and coffee.
