Bibliographies and Literature of Agriculture, US Department of Agriculture 
No. 72, 20 pp.

National Agricultural Library.

selected annotated bibliography with lists of relevant organizations and 
periodicals. ] Agriculture ecologique en Afrique franchophone: bibliographie 
selective commentee; organismes -- periodiques. 96 pp. 183 ref.
A joint publication by AGRECOL Development Information, ENDA (Environment

I'm hoping that someone may be able to help me locate or find organic
agricultural references from 1940-1950, specifically dealing with temperate
and tropical climates. If you have any suggestions on references that are
applicable to this topic, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.
