Training Manual for Organic Agriculture in the Humid Tropics - Download (EN)

The IFOAM Training Manual series was developed to improve the quality and the availability of didactic material on Organic Agriculture in tropical countries. To trainers, it offers a resource, which can be individually adapted and developed according to specific training needs. 

The main focus of the IFOAM Training Manual for Organic Agriculture in the Humid Tropics is on small-farm practices in developing countries located in the humid tropics. The manual builds on the IFOAM Training Manual for Organic Agriculture in the Tropics (which provides basic knowledge of Organic Farming for tropical regions), and has been compiled alongside the IFOAM Training Manual for Organic Agriculture in the Arid and Semi-Arid Tropics. 

The IFOAM Training Manual for Organic Agriculture in the Humid Tropics provides a vast array of specific knowledge, taking into account the geographic and climatic conditions in these climatic zones. The manual contains case studies of organic farming systems, describes successful organic marketing initiatives and offers guidelines for the main crops of the Humid Tropics. 
The Training Manual is designed as a guide and source book to implement training programs. It will help trainers develop the structure of a course or workshop, and provide material and ideas for its organization. The Manual can also serve as a handbook for those who want to get a more clear and complete idea about organic farming practices in the Humid Tropics.
