Commentary by Braden Jenkin
In 2007 I began assisting with projects associated with Papua New Guinea’s rural communities, specifically considering trees as a cash crop within food production systems. I was amazed at the broad breadth of published available information.
Braden Jenkin with Dr Sir Puka Temu
I was able to make use of the Agricultural Systems of Papua New Guinea series of reports, which were published by the Australian National University. I found them very informative and practical series of documentations of agriculture in the areas where I was working. These publications were of particular benefit to building on my understanding of agriculture in PNG.
These six parts are preceded by a foreword by the PNG High Commissioner to Australia, Mr Charles Lepani, and three introductory essays. The book further contains 165 tables and 215 maps and figures.
