Title: Food for the gods or malnutrition for many? : some implications of the widespread introduction of Theobroma cacao into the Pacific island agricultural systems

Author: Thomas, Pamela M.
Subject:  Cocoa|Economic aspects|Fiji
 Cocoa|Social aspects|Fiji
Volume: Vol.07, 1981
Collation: p. 37-80

Abstract: Theobroma cacao, considered by the ancient Mexicans to be ``food for the Gods``, is today an important export crop in many tropical countries. In 1980, cocoa worth $3 ,000 million was sold on the world market. Cocoa was introduced into the Pacific in the 1850s and although production has been limited, it has provided Vanuatu, Tahiti, Western Samoa and Papua New Guinea with a small, steady income (Gill and Duffus, 1980: 12). With a rapid increase in cocoa prices in the Pacific to climb upon the cocoa bandwaggon and greatly increased production is being encouraged by governments in Papua New Guinea, Western Samoa and Fiji.

Title: The policy of rehabilitations in Fiji

Author: Dubsky, Roman, Goundar, Vishwa N., Ram, Roshni
Subject:  Criminals|Rehabilitation|Fiji
Volume: Vol.07, 1981
Collation: p. 1-16

Abstract: The interest in prison rehabilitation as an object of publlic policy has acquired a new dimension in Fiji in the 1970s and the early 1980s. Several major developments have occurred in thhis area, closely connected, it seems, with more self-conscious ideas of national development and with a thrust in the economy towards more comprehensive development planning. The principal aim of this study is to identify and explain these developments with a view to enhancing the understanding of Fiji's rehabilitation policy to a particular approach, that of policy analysis, which has been neglected in the Pacific in the studies of public affairs hitherto.

Title: The phenomenon of varietal yield decline of sugar cane with particular reference to Fiji

Author: Prasad, Prem Chandra
Subject:  Sugarcane|Yields|Fiji
 Sugarcane|Varieties
Volume: Vol.07, 1981
Collation: p. 81-104

Abstract: The varietal yield decline of sugar cane (Saccharum Officinarum L.) is a complex problem being dependent not only upon vigour of the crop but also upon physical environmental conditions. The deterioration of soil physical and chemical properties, ratoon stunting disease, presence of nematodes and poor quality of management practices all contribute in varying proportions to the decline of yield in sugar cane. By virtue of its importance, research on sugar cane breeding has an international dimension.
