TROPICAL FRUIT INDUSTRY AS INCOME BUILDING POWER FOR AN AFRICAN COMMUNITY / PART V: INTRODUCTION TO TOMATO AGRIBUSINESS

Tomato is a very popular staple and foodstuff in Africa. However, as one can see reviewing figures listed here sub-Saharan Africa - except South Africa - is non existent as producer. In the contrary it imports large quantities of tomato paste as shown on Table below :

- ESTIMATION OF THE POTENTIAL MARKET EXISTING FOR FRESH TOMATO IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICAN COUNTRIES

Industry statistics for well managed tomato plantations established from high yield varieties of tomato seeds (roma, san marino and so on), and optimal tomato pasta processing conditions, reveal that the necessary quantity of fresh tomato to producing 1 kg of double concentrated tomato pasta at 28° I.R. is around 5,89 kg.

If plantations are not well managed (insufficient manure, excessive sunshine, imperfect or non existent irrigation and so on) and if processing conditions are not optimized, the amount of fresh tomato needed to producing 1 kg of double concentrated tomato pasta at 28° I.R. could jump to 8- 9,20 kg

- If we consider operation under best conditions for plantation management and pasta processing, figures listed here allow for the following rough estimation of the quantities of fresh tomato that could be cultivated in sub-Saharan Africa: 5,89 x 142,000 = 832,000 - 247,000 (production of South Africa + Senegal) (see Table N°1) = 585,000 metric tons.

-This is a real niche opportunity for any international investor or African country to improving its foreign exchange balance. It is also a perfect Economic Catalyst

HOW TO PRESERVE php TABLE SETTINGS INTO AN ASCII DOCUMENT

You certainly have been confronted once with the problem of preserving the settings of a table in an php document into a table in a simple text or ASCII document.

If you copy and paste an php document from the web into Windows Notepad or any other ASCII / text tool like NoteTab or TextPad the structure of a table in the php document comes out completely disorganized into the text tool. Even a tool like phpASC that is the one which operates the best in preserving the php document transformation into an ASCII one, does not preserve php table's settings.

The only way (if I am wrong please do send me an alternative) is to transform the php table into an image - gif / bmp file to be inserted into your text document.

One tool stands out of the crowd to do the trick. It is HYPERSNAP DX 4 that makes it easy to have a snapshot of anything on the desktop screen and transforms it into an image file.

If you do not want to waste time reconfiguring table settings when you transform an php document into an text / ASCII one, HYPERSNAP is the efficient answer.
