This book reviews the latest developments in integrated pest management (IPM), focussing on insect pests. It discusses advances in understanding species and landscape ecology, as well as advances in cultural, physical and biological methods of control.
With increasing restrictions on pesticides, this volume reviews advances in understanding key diseases and insect pests of tree fruit. The book shows how this understanding can be used to improve integrated disease and pest management techniques.
Greenhouse and other forms of protected cultivation create controlled environments to offset climate change and to optimise resource use. This volume reviews the current research in more efficient climate control and root development to optimise their use.
This volume summarises the wealth of research on improving sustainability in vegetable cultivation. Part 1 reviews advances in physiology and breeding. Parts 2-3 summarise advances in cultivation and pest management. The book concludes wtih case studies on the breeding and cultivation of key vegetables.
This volume reviews key methods for measuring the environmental impact of agriculture. Part 1 reviews life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology. Part 2 reviews ways of modelling particular types of impact. Part 3 covers particular agricultural sectors.

This three-volume collection brings together research on the production of the most widely-consumed meat in the world. It reviews the safety, quality and sustainability of pig meat as well as focusing on the breeding of pigs and their nutritional requirements. The collection also highlights the importance of maintaining good animal health and the effect this has on pig meat production.
This six-volume collection covers the advances in genetics and breeding of crops such as potatoes, grain legumes and cassava. The collection also reviews how to manage and understand the range of pests and diseases affecting these crops, as well as ways to improve cultivation techniques.
This five-volume collection reviews current research on safety, quality and sustainability issues in egg and poultry meat production. Other areas such as the importance of animal health, welfare and their nutritional requirements are also discussed as well as advances in poultry genetics and their effects on breeding.
This ten-volume collection reviews current research trends on five of the most important cereal crops: rice, maize, wheat, barley and sorghum. It addresses challenges in areas such as genetics and breeding to improve crop quality, cultivation and production techniques, as well as the importance of managing the vast amount of pests and diseases affecting these five major cereal crops.
This three-volume collection reviews research on the production of one of the world's most important agricultural food products: milk. The collection discusses milk composition and the range of products that can be produced, whilst also reviewing current research in genetics and breeding of dairy cattle. Safety, quality and sustainability issues, and the importance of dairy herd management and welfare are also addressed.
This seven-volume collection reviews current research trends in fruits, vegetables and nuts. It includes tomatoes, apples, bananas and mangoes, as well as temperate zone tree fruits and berries and tree nuts. Areas such as advances in genetics and breeding these crops are reviewed as well as ways in improving cultivation techniques to make the production of these crops more sustainable.

We are extremely delighted to share an exclusive snippet from the Foreword to our forthcoming titles on the Advances in Conservation Agriculture Volume 1 & Volume 2, edited by Prof. Amir Kassam, University of Reading, UK.
Director General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organiszation (FAO), Qu Dongyu says about the book,
"This edifying book is a compendium of much of what we have learnt across the world about CA... It will serve as an immensely valuable source of reference – and inspiration - for all those who are committed to putting the world’s food systems on a truly sustainable footing. It is with great pleasure, therefore, that I commend this book to you."
Bacteria found in cow gut could increase milk yields
A team of researchers from Scotland's Rural College (SRUC), University of Edinburgh's Roslin Institute and the Rowett Institute at the University of Aberdeen, have analysed the rumen contents of thousands of cows and discovered the presence of bacteria that could improve meat and dairy production.
