Author: Finney, Kevin; Laukon, Alexander; Marshall Islands. Ministry of Resources and Development; University of Oregon. Micronesia and South Pacific Program
Abstract: The Marshall Islands, once self sufficient in food production, have become dependent on imported foods. In addition to the economic problems created by this situation, the Marshallese people suffer a high incidence of malnutrition and diet-related diseases. In an effort to address these problems, the Ministry of R&D, Agriculture Division has developed its Replanting for Self-Reliance Program with the following goals: • Promote opportunities for increased production of basic staple crops. • Promote higher yielding varieties of root crops and improved fruit tree varieties. • Provide training and technical assistance in the crop scheme.
Description: iii, 42 p. "Project undertaken by: the Ministry of Resources and Development, Republic of the Marshall Islands, with technical assistance from: the University of Oregon Micronesia and South Pacific Program."
