Intercropping and the Scientific Basis of Traditional Agriculture
This book is a pioneering, comparative study of the practice of intercropping (growing two or more crops at once in the same field). Innis's meticulous analysis of the scientific base of different traditional forms of agriculture in Jamaica, Nepal and India, is at the forefront of the search for integrated systems of indigenous and modern agriculture. In his concluding chapter, Innis proposes the return of the small farmer to the land and suggests how this might be done. Published in the Indigenous Knowledge and Development series.

The late Donald Q.Innis was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Geography, State University of New York at Geneseo, NY, for twenty-five years. In addition, he also taught at Chicago and Kington, Ontario. This study represents the culmination of Dr Innis' work on traditional agriculture.
