Journal of Tropical Agriculture 37(1/2): 110-114
Crop-tree inventory of the home gardens of southern Kerala
A study was conducted in the Thiruvananthapuram district of southern Kerala, India to obtain a detailed inventory of the crops and trees grown in 400 home gardens, and to assess the variation in the relative predominance of the crops with respect to different agroeconomic zones. The average size of the home gardens was 0.33 ha. Data on plant frequency and species diversity are presented in tabular form.
