Robotics has great potential in improving productivity and precision in agriculture. The book reviews advances in technologies such as machine vision and control systems, as well as applications from crop planting, fertilisation, pest and weed management to livestock production.
This collection reviews key advances in cereals breeding. It looks at advances in exploiting genetic diversity, the use of doubled haploids and hybrid breeding. The book also reviews developments in phenotyping, the use of genetic markers and techniques such as genomic selection.
Volume 1 focusses on key advances across the value chain, from breeding improved varieties to better techniques for cultivation and crop protection. Part 1 discusses current research on physiology, genetics and breeding. Part 2 reviews advances in cultivation from orchard design to optimising water and nutrient management and harvesting operations
The second volume in this collection reviews advances in breeding and cultivation of particular fruits. Part 1 discusses development affecting key stone fruits (peach, cherry, plum and apricot) and pome fruits (pear and apple). Part 2 reviews optimising the breeding and cultivation of berry fruits (strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and blueberry).
This volume reviews the latest research on the role and implementation of main types of agroforestry, understanding and assessing the ecosystem services that agroforestry can deliver and techniques for optimising agroforestry practice.

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.
