Under the terms of USDA Contract No. 12-17-07-5-2173, the author has
prepared a bibliography on agricultural development in the Caribbean
Region, defined operationally by U.S. AID as comprising the smaller English-
speaking states in the Caribbean, viz.: Antigua, Barbados, Belize, British
Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts-
began in October 1977 and continued intermittently, both in the field
and in Washington, D.C., until September 1978. I am indebted to a large
number of individuals for giving me access to both published and unpublished
studies in the libraries of their respective organizations.
The author is quick to point out that this bibliography, though
quite lengthy, is not complete. First of all, a decision was made to
include (with relatively few exceptions) only publications since 1960.
Secondly, because of time constraints and the law of diminishing returns,
the search for documents had to leave some stones unturned. Undoubtedly,
studies which should have appeared in the bibliography are not included,
and apologies are offered to their authors.
With a few exceptions, reports by the IBRD, IDB, and OAS--many of
which have a restricted distribution--have not been included in this
Bibliography. They should, however, be consulted by those interested in
a detailed, macroeconomic view of the Caribbean Region. Particularly
valuable in this respect is the IBRD's Caribbean Regional Study (1975)
and its series of reports on the Eastern Caribbean less developed countries,
issued in 1978.
The form in which the bibliography entries appear is (loosely) based
on guidelines provided in the University of Chicago Manual of Style,
twelfth edition; a number of modifications, though, have been made.
For some books and technical reports, the number of pages is indicated.
Library locations, with call numbers if available, are given in brackets.
The library may be identified by consulting the list of abbreviations of
library locations. Both a Crop Index and a General (topical) Index are

1. ABBOTT, George C. "The Collapse of the Sea Island Cotton Industry in the
West Indies." Social and Economic Studies 13 (March 1964):157-187.
The author discusses the events leading to a decline in production to
only one-third its 1939/40 level. Since the market is expected to be
weak, and prices therefore low, a continuing decline in production is
2. ----. "The Future of Economic Cooperation in the West indies in the
Light of the Break-up of the Federation." Social and Economic Studies
12 (June 1963):160-178.
Examines the effect of the break-up of the Federation of the West
Indies on the British West Indies Sugar Association. Argues that"there
are centrifugal forces at work tending to bring about a looser form of
economic cooperation among the sugar islands with the possible disinte-
gration of BWISA." The author also finds a movement from regionalism
to individualism in the production and marketing of other agricultural
commodities for which regional associations or agreements exist, or for
which inter-island trade exists.
3. --. "Stabilisation Policies in West Indian Sugar Industries."
Caribbean Quarterly 9 (March-June 1963):53-66.
The author argues that "it is . essential if the industry is to
adjust itself with the minimum social dislocation to changing world
conditions, political as well as economic, that it should have adequate
reserves at its disposal." Some form of stabilization program, he says,
is urgently needed.
4. ----. "The West Indian Sugar Industry with Some Long-Term Projections
and Supply to 1975." Social and Economic Studies 13 (March 1964):1-37.
Reviews changes in acreage and yields and develops 2 separate projec-
tions, based on different methods, which can be regarded as estimates
of technical feasibility. Economic feasibility is then examined in the
light of possible changes in production costs, price considerations,
and marketing problems. The author notes that the region is very
dependent on guaranteed markets and/or premium prices.

Caribbean." Proceedings, WIAEC, 7th (1972):8-13.
Argues that agricultural development objectives would best be achieved
if the State became the sole landlord and provided a wide range of
services, including credit tied to extension education. Maintains that
public ownership of all lands would facilitate 3 important changes:
"amalgamation of plots of uneconomic size, thereby checking fragmen-
tation; reduction of the size of farms where the acreage exceeds the
optimum for the particular type of crop which the operator is cultivating;
and finally, engineering works to secure solutions to problems of
erosion." Critizes existing credit institutions, which are said to
favor large farmers.

The authors revise traditional customs union theory with the intention
of making it more appropriate to conditions faced by developing
countries. They briefly discuss the economies of 5 Caribbean countries
(Barbados, The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Surinam and Trinidad-
Tobago) and review integration efforts in the Caribbean through the
1960s. Finally, the authors apply their theoretical framework to the
5 countries studied, based on the several options for economic
integration available to each of them.

to be deficiencies in land tenure, management, feeding, breeds and
breeding, health, marketing, and credit. The authors make recommenda-
tions for increasing productivity, stressing the unique socioeconomic
and environmental conditions in each country.

Livestock development is seen to have considerable potential for saving
foreign exchange, reducing imported inflation, and providing income and
employment. It is also stated that the rural population prefers livestock
operations to crop farming. Major constraints are said to be lack of
sufficient land with secure tenure for potential livestock operators,
poor management and lack of restraint, and price controls and other

Caribbean economies are said to "exhibit many features of a less
developed colonial structure, viz., intersectoral dualism; intrasec-
toral dualism in agriculture; heavy reliance on a few export commod-
ities; and heavy reliance on private foreign capital and governmental
grants-in-aid." The importance of political and social factors in
economic policymaking is stressed.

Emphasizes the need to help small farmers improve their agricultural
practices, which the authors regard as being seriously deficient.
Recommends greater use of Ministry of Agriculture extension staff in the
CDB's FIC program. Also recommended are improvements in training
methods and facilities, as well as centralized planning, coordination,
and stimulation of sub-borrower training.

The authors concluded that extension services in countries served by
the UWI need assistance in the form of in-service training in agricul-
tural subject matters, techniques of communication, program planning,
and evaluation. They recommended that the UWI establish a Department
of Agricultural Extension.

Grenada, St. Vincent and St. Lucia. Soils ranged from calcareous
clays in Barbados to markedly acid sands in St. Vincent and the rain-
fall during the cropping season ranged from 20.8 to 31.7 in. Mean
maximum grain yields ranged from 2434 lb grain (15% moisture)/ac on
Woburn clay in Grenada, which experienced unseasonal dry periods
during the experiment, to 4460 lb on Bouldery sand in St. Vincent."

The author's "major thesis is that agricultural credit by itself is
meaningless. The major task immediately before us is to identify
individuals in our several countries with entrepreneurial skills and
drive and so to set the stage that they would be drawn into the farming
sector. With this accomplished, the supports will follow because, by
definition, the dynamic agro-businessman is a go-getter. The missing
pieces will fall into place when the right men and women are fully
awakened to the untapped potential in Caribbean farming." The author
is an agricultural advisor with Barclay's Bank in Barbados.

of response to fertilizers was attributable to an adequate supply
of nutrients from the soil. Fertilizer requirements to maintain soil
fertility were calculated" [Authors' abstract].
56. BECKFORD, George L. "Agriculture and Economic Development." Caribbean
Quarterly 11 (March-June 1965):50-63.
Argues that economic development in the region can be accelerated by
increasing food production for the domestic market. But for this to
occur, the "built-in bias toward export production" must change.
Structural reform (to dismantle the plantation system) and changes in
trade policies are called for.

exchange earnings, and would result in a significant redistribution
of income. Credit and extension are recommended to accompany redis-
tribution. Argues that freehold tenure systems will always result
in unequal distribution of land and therefore should be abolished.

An insightful analysis of the economic and social consequences of the
plantation system, which Beckford argues continues to exist to a sub-
stantial degree despite the achievement of political independence in
much of the Caribbean and elsewhere in the Third World. Beckford sees
the escape from persistentt poverty" as coming only from the destruction
of the plantation system and the establishment of a less-open economy
geared more toward production for the domestic market and for a
regional market integrating the individual plantation economies whose
small size inhibits development. Greater control of economic activity
by nationals, and less by foreigners, is urged. This book is required
reading for all students of the Caribbean.

"The Lesser Antilles have special development difficulties: low
resource base-overpopulation; small size-island economies; unemploy-
ment-brain drain. Expansion of tourism increases the cultural
dependence. More self-sufficiency in food through agricultural
progress is thus recommended. This requires structural reform
creating small and medium farms--which will need support. Training
and animation activities should therefore get high priority, as
well as research. Above all, there is need for the political will
to reduce dependence and inequalities" [A.T.A., February 1975].

Argues that "rural development in the West Indies has largely been
conceived as a spreading out of the superior urban standards into the
rural areas. There is little resistance to the provision of such
amenities. Indeed the problem is one of failure to satisfy the demand
or to render that demand economic. The cultural factors inhibiting
rural development lie largely in the failure to provide sufficient
education related to the every-day life of the people; and the failure
to adapt standards to the way of life of the people."

"There is some evidence to suggest that there has been a perverse
relationship between tourism and agriculture in at least some of the
smaller Caribbean islands, where tourism and related construction
activities grew rapidly during the 1960s. The fiscal structure itself,
with its heavy reliance in import duties on necessities places a rela-
tively large part of the burden of financing the contribution of
government to tourist development on the lower income groups."

"Based on an analysis for production levels of 2,500 units per day and
current market prices, a food processing facility in the LDCs would
have a financial rate of return of less than 10 per cent--surely not
enough to interest private sector investment. Without such an installa-
tion, however, the existing seasonal gluts will continue with direct
losses to farmers and/or to the government agencies which now function
as guaranteed markets. It is believed that both of these sectors will
have to collabotate to alleviate this situation. The form of collabora-
tion envisaged is a jointly owned processing facility with equity being
held by the farming community and the marketing agency" [CLARKE].

"It is concluded that the amount of nitrogen in the soil depends on
vegetation, rainfall and soil drainage and that the supply of nitrogen
available to plants frequently depends on rainfall and on the base-
status of soils rather than on the total amount of N present. This
implies that laboratory tests for nitrogen supplying potential have
little value. Fertilizer dressings should be based on soil type,
climate and crop demand; vegetative crops on long cultivated, base-
deficient soils are more likely to respond to fertilizer N than those
on newly cultivated soils with high base status" [Author's abstract].

Classifies into 6 categories the 27 research organizations in the
region (out of 28) responding to the author's questionnaire. Critically
evaluates their contribution to agricultural development. Notes that
adaptive research is carried out in the region to a much greater
extent than fundamental research. Few biochemical innovations have
been generated. The author recommends that increased emphasis be
placed on domestic crops as opposed to export crops.

Fundamental research in the region was limited exclusively to sugar-
cane and cocoa. About half the research organizations devoted their
adaptive research efforts to a single export crop; the others were
working on a great variety of crops. "Experimental research results
indicate that (1) crop varieties released by experimental stations
displayed relatively small yield differential under N-P-K treatment
as against no fertilization, (2) although some recommended crop
varieties increased yields, it was unprofitable for many farmers to
adopt the recommended practices, (3) experimental results for the
best available technology were not significantly better than results
attained by the better peasant farmers using traditional technology
and (4) the only crop varieties that appear to represent improved
inputs are the hybrid maize varieties X304 and X306 developed by the
private Pioneer Hi-Bred Corn Company in Jamaica" [DAI].

develop a greater sense of West Indian identity. It is also becoming
obvious that the Commonwealth Caribbean is, even as a collectivity,
too small as an optimum unit for economic integration and that a

"The level of agronomic technology practiced in the growing of yams
in the Caribbean region is discussed. It was noted that low yields
of under 12 tons/ha. are normally obtained. With the exception of
Barbados, yams are generally grown by small farmers in mixed stands.
Staking is sometimes necessary but it can be expensive. It is suggested
that future research should be geared toward the production of non-
staking cultivars and to investigate the economics of fertilizer
application and disease control. With the development of processing
methods the future for yam growing in the area seems good" [Author's

Describes the different patterns of land tenure in St. Kitts, Nevis,
St. Lucia, and Dominica. Argues that there is little enthusiasm for
land ownership in St. Kitts and Nevis. The land tenure system in St.
Kitts, where there is little private landholding, is said to be disad-
vantageous for diversification. In Dominica, technology on the large
estates, many of themowned by absentee landlords, is said to be back-
ward; indiscriminate squatting by small farmers leads to soil erosion.
In St. Lucia, the community property system inherited from the French
occupation is said to be a major barrier to agricultural development.

Discusses the region's high foreign exchange outlays for wheat and
flour. Notes that it is very difficult to shift consumer preferences
toward wheat substitutes. Such a shift, in any event, is not always
desirable because the alternatives are uaually more expensive and less
nutritious. Foreign exchange, it is noted, can be saved through
increased in-country milling of wheat. Research on cassava bread,
fortified with peanut or soybean meal offers some hope for a locally-
produced, acceptable product which will substitute for wheat bread.

Examines emigration from Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad, arguing that
social forces are more important explanatory factors than individual
values. Emigration since 1945 is attributed to dependence on external
capital and.technology, failure to provide employment for persons at
all skill levels, and a lack of linkages among economic sectors.
Migration is shown to be highly selective of better educated, highly
skilled young adults.

attitudes and capacities of farmers, whether adequate marketing
arrangements have been established for dealing with the increased

service. An appropriate organisational scheme and a saturation ap-

extension in the Caribbean, beginning in 1901. Notes that very little
assistance in extension was given to the individual countries by the
UWI (and, before 1962, the Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture)
until the late 1960s. A Department of Agricultural Extension,
recommended in a 1965 report (Baskett et al.1965) was formally estab-
lished in 1969. The Department's programs are described.

very seriously and urgently to the question of whether there is in the
long term any economic or social sense in proliferating the minifundia
at the expense of the plantations. A large proportion of the land
settlement schemes can be justified on welfare grounds only.. .
Apart from the land settlement scheme, no alternative to the plantation
system as a means of increasing agricultural prediction has been
seriously considered" [HILLS].

tation: "There is little doubt that under certain circumstances
fragmentation of the farm is a necessity and may be economically and
socially advantageous." (The authors are referring to multiple plots,
not the process of plot subdivision.) The origins and consequences of
farm fragmentation in the Commonwealth Caribbean are discussed.

form the key elements of a strategy for an adequate taxation of
agricultural incomes." An increase in export taxes is discouraged.

Neo-classical theory was found to be far more useful in understanding
labor behavior in the Caribbean than the so-called theory of natural
indolence. "The disseration investigated the way that the supply
of effort depends on family organization, where the relevant unit
was defined as the primary emphathy group. One important prediction
that has been derived on logical and empirical grounds is directly
opposite to one made by the Usual Theory of the extended family;
it was found that more effort will be offered by an individual when
his primary empathy group is more extended than when it is less

that agriculture's share of regional GDP declined from 25% in 1950 to
15% in 1961. It is argued that most of the productive resources going
into industrial development came not from agriculture (which suffered
a cost-price squeeze, particularly for export crops) but from abroad.
Agriculture in the West Indies, it is argued, cannot be carried by
the rest of the economy but must be revitalized to make a positive

the tertiary incomes by the operation of 'multipliers'. The multi-
plier analysis used in the report, the authors point out, fails to
allow for import leakages. It is argued that the report is a product
of the metropolitan tourist lobby which promotes the kind of growth
that widens inequalities in the developing countries.

A brief summary of the structure of the Caribbean economies and the
role of government in economic activity. Notes that government
generally accounts for a relatively small share of GNP but plays a
major role as a regulator of economic activity, particularly in agri-
culture where entrepreneurship is said to be weak. Notes that all
large employers negotiate with trade unions, which have gained much
higher wages and much better working conditions than generally avail-
able in non-union employment.

for the establishment of a viable intra-regional trade in fish and
fish products if the.major constraints are removed. The resources of
the region might not be sufficient to meet total needs but could
certainly go a far way towards satisfying these demands." Major
constraints are identified as lack of vessels and maintenance facilities,
inadequate processing and storage facilities, lack of regional refriger-
ated transport, poor distribution facilities, untrained personnel,
and consumer resistance to regional products.

of West Indian Citrus." Social and Economic Studies 13 (March 1964):
Through past performance in the industry has been disappointing, the

from plantings coming to maturity, new plantings under the Citrus
Development Plan and a general increase in productivity. Notes the
continued dependence of the industry on the U.K. market.

Argues that unless the region continues to have access to the protected
U.K. market, banana production is unlikely to be competitive with other
sources of supply. If access to the U.K. market is maintained, and
consumption there continues to rise, most of the increased supply is
projected to come from the Windward Islands rather than Jamaica.

keting flows." Opposes minimum guaranteed price schemes and the type
of price fixing that occurs under the Agricultural Marketing Protocol.

Notes that meat production is an insignificant part of total sector

of land in permanent crops, the low livestock population, and the high
cost of imported feed. Marketing of domestic meat generally is un-
organized. Price controls are sometimes used to hold down the price
to consumers. The author argues that market research is necessary
to devise better marketing procedures.

Kitts. There appears to be a general consensus that the industry
must be saved from complete collapse but the rescue attempt will not

Proceedings, WIAEC, 5th (1970):78-84.
The author notes that small-farm agriculture in the West Indies does
not conform to the "general model" used by sociologists and anthro-
pologists, which assumes ties to the land built up over centuries,
lack of knowledge of the outside world, and resistance to innovation.
This study, based on a random sample of about 200 farms in each
island, uses factor analysis to examine relationships among the
32 variables for which data was obtained. The analysis suggests
that "small scale agriculture in Barbados, St. Lucia and Martinique
is not intrinsically different but rather at different stages of
development along a continuum characterized by the increasing
commercialization of land use and rising technological levels of

A valuable survey of economic and political conditions through the mid-
1960s. The author maintains that "underlying the need for economic
development in the Leeward and Windward Islands is the search for a
form of nationhood, and it has been impossible to detach the one prob-
lem from the other." The author sees considerable scope for increasing
agricultural productivity if a "realistic policy of education, research,
and propagation, land tenure reform, and, above all; the provision of
credit is carried out."

Argues that a wheat substitution policy can improve nutrition among the
poor if it is based on a program providing low income farmers "land,
credit, extension services and guaranteed prices for these crops; with
the high income elasticities of demand for food characteristic of such
groups, dietary and nutritional improvement is inevitable."

Imported Luxury." Cajanus 10 (1977):89-96.
Notes that the apparent relative cheapness of wheat in the Caribbean is
due partly to the fact that wheat is subsidized. Argues strongly that
staple foods should be indigenous foods. Particular attention is given
to recent efforts in Guyana to use cassava as a substitute for wheat.

"Whether there is a global arrangement for sugar or not, it is important
that the Commonwealth Caribbean should be treated as one unit for quota
purposes and be allowed to redistribute shortfalls. The area is likely
to be faced with a decline in production in some countries and with
expansion in others. Unless shortfalls are met within the area, the
Commonwealth Caribbean allocation will decline with time because of
the inability of some countries to meet quotas" [PERSAUD].

actions. Mechanization, the author believes, is essential if the
sugar industry is to be competitive.

Given the region's high food import bill, the prospects for food
processing are viewed as great. Food self-sufficiency is regarded as
a moral imperative, and little attention is given to the costs of
processing where the local market is extremely limited. The author
argues that profitability concerns must give way to concerns for human

removal of price controls on the more expensive better quality cuts,
closer control of the importation of products from extra-regional
sources, greater use of small stock and a changed approach to livestock
production as an investment."

Pangola grass is the principal pasture grass in the Caribbean, and
this study reports on an experiment to test its production and feeding
value. "Silage was prepared successfully from fresh Pangola grass;
it was consumed readily by sheep in amounts that would provide for
maintenance or near maintenance of sheep and cattle. The addition of
molasses to frash and wilted grass resulted in a lower feeding value
of the silage, but this may have been caused by inadequate compaction
on the silage material."

flowering was inhibited by photoperiod control), cane yield gains due
to prevention of flowering were estimated to be 57% in a plant crop

was 69% in the plant and 35% in the ratoon crop. The influence of
loss of growth, side-shoot production and pithiness on the yield of
flowered canes are discussed" [A.T.A., February 1978].

supply side rather than the demand side. He assumes, though, that
current rehabilitation and expansion schemes will soon bring large
number of high-yielding trees into production. Thus cocoa output in

xxii+441 [I(a)]; xvi+144 [I(b)]; and xv+153 [II]. [AID/W: LAC/DR/RD]
Volume I consists of two parts: (a) country reports on the 8 "LDCs"
in the region (Antigua, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St.
Kitts-Nevis-(Anguilla), St. Lucia, and St. Vincent; and (b) results of
a survey of small farmers in Dominica, St. Vincent, and Montserrat.
Small farmers were defined as those having from 1 to 25 acres; thus
large numbers of farmers with less than 1 acre were excluded. The
survey provides much valuable information (there are few other studies
of this nature), but the income data are weak and other data could
have been presented in more usable form. Volume II, whose contents
are confidential, is an evaluation of the CDB's Farm Improvement

3 times as high, and in Costa Rica they are 4 times as high. Protection
given to the West Indies by the U.K. has discouraged cost-reducing
measures. But since protection is not likely to continue indefinitely,
it is argued that the West Indies needs to become more competitive.

that the supply of bananas available for export from the Windward
Islands could double between 1964 and 1970. In the discussion it is
noted that banana growers in the Windwards receive about twice as much
as Latin American producers for their bananas. This, it is said, is
causing Latin American countries to pressure the British government
for lower protection in the Windwards.

Rotylenchis reniformis was found in large numbers. "Laboratory and green-
house studies showed that under natural conditions the nematode caused
distinct lesions around its feeding site; it is capable of completing
its life cycle in the roots of both host plants and it lays a large
number of eggs" [EDMUNDS].

"Yield data at the end of one year indicated that despite reduction in
nematode population due to fallowing, there was no concomitant increase
in average bunch weight or total production. Fallowing proved to be
an uneconomic venture. Chemical nematode control and continuous banana
production is recommended" [EDMUNDS].

higher nematode population than the primary roots, thus suggesting the
importance to nematodes in contributing to the severe rotting of the
feeder roots and the subsequent effect on water and nutrient uptake"

so. Results of the author's 1965 cost-of-production study in St. Lucia
are reviewed, and new data, based on regular visits to 30 farms through-
out 1965, are presented. The author argues that "management is the
major problem and not scale of production, [so] there is no need for

"Most of the better land in Antigua had been alienated by plantations
long before the bulk of its . population had acquired the right
through emancipation to own land. With the exception of the land
settlement scheme which 'is not impressive either in magnitude or
achievement,' the predominant systems of land tenure and tenancy are
only slightly modified forms from the pre-emancipation days. The
result is a large landless peasantry which lives under constant econ-
omic distress, and which is becoming restive in its demands for land

The author finds that "far more than any other cash or subsistence
pursuit, cattle keeping provides a way for Barbudans to adjust to
environmental change, to strengthen social bonds and community soli-
darity, to create a prestigious social and economic place for men in
a society with scanty resources, and finally to extend economic
involvement with the world beyond Barbuda." Inadequate rainfall
makes cash crops unattractive. "[Barbuda's] system of open-range
husbandry and communal land tenure successfully protects social
organization and economy against the effects of long drought."

"A customary system of communal land tenure operates in response to
the needs of free-ranging cattle, shifting cultivation, and timber
harvest. Other cash and subsistence pursuits are fishing and lobster-
diving. These pursuits, the basis of Barbuda's post-Emancipation
economy, are adaptive to specific environmental features, especially
shallow soils and periodic drought. Environment and history limited
Barbuda's development as a plantation island, making Barbuda the
corporate community of peasant producers we now find" [DAI]. Barbudan
society is described as unstratifiedd."
