Abstract
The agricultural conference which was recently held at Yangambi in the Belgian Congo was a complete revelation to the East African delegation. For the last twenty-five years technical officers in local departments of agriculture have struggled along, with the limited funds and staff available, and on the whole have accomplished very excellent work. But Yangambi, under 'the auspices of the Institute National POW I’ Etude Agronomique du Congo-Beige (I.N.E.A.C.), is the scientific worker's dream of Utopia. Adequate qualified staff, good housing, no shortage of funds, the very best technical equipment procurable (and most of it British made at that) and an adequate monetary reward.
