Abstract

All Praise to Allah SWT whose assistance and guidance has enabled me to complete this book that emphasizes on global plantation. The plantation sector is a strategic sector because of its dominant role in the economic and social development not only of a particular country but also as a global player in the provision of food, source of employment, economic returns through international trade and political stability. This sector stresses the strong bondage among the players in the industry comprising the workforce, plantation corporations, the unions as well as the states. The management of the plantations right from the selection of the appropriate agricultural crops, its agronomic and management practices, the risks and uncertainties involved and finally, meeting the ever changing consumers' needs requires a very strong commitment and total involvement on the part of these players as a team to face the insurmountable challenges. The sense of belonging to the company must be instilled forever as the company belongs to them. This book highlights the significance of the various plantations crops normally cultivated in Asia, Africa and the Latin American countries. The companies involved are mostly multi-national in nature and they control the export market of some of these products globally.
