This paper focuses on an analysis of this and other relevant articles published in the journal "Der Tropenpflanzer". By examining the character and development of cotton, rubber and cocoa plantations in the colonies Cameroon and Togo, this paper aims to elicit the character, dimensions and institutional structures of German networks in tropical agronomy. At the same time, it will illustrate how colonial agriculture and phytopathology helped to transform, perceive, observe and communicate environments and non-human agency.
