Understanding and fostering soil carbon sequestration
 
This collection reviews the wealth of recent research on important aspects of soil carbon sequestration in different environments and soil types and its contribution to ensuring a positive carbon budget at the farm and landscape level. 
Optimising pig herd health and production
 
This collection summarises the wealth of research on optimising pig health to prevent the occurrence and spread of major diseases known to the pig industry, such as African Swine Fever (ASF) and Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS). 
Improving soil health
This collection summarises current research on the effects of different management strategies on the physical, chemical and biological properties of soils. It assesses the viability of these management strategies, including zero tillage and intercropping, as a means for improving crop yield, ecosystem productivity and soil health in general. 
Climate-smart production of coffee: Improving social and environmental sustainability
 
The coffee sector needs more sustainable methods of cultivation. This volume reviews the range of recent research addressing these challenges, from social and environmental sustainability to integrated management of pests and diseases based on agroecological principles. 
Optimising poultry flock health
 
This collection reviews the range of recent research on improving our understanding of the mechanisms of disease transmission and how this understanding can be used to improve poultry flock health. 
Understanding and optimising the nutraceutical properties of fruit and vegetables
 
This collection reviews research on phytochemicals in fruits and vegetables, their health benefits and ways these benefits can be optimised to improve human health. 
Advances in seed science and technology for more sustainable crop production
 
This collection reviews the wealth of recent research on advances in seed science and technology, including key developments in seed phenotyping and seed treatments, and their role in contributing to a more sustainable agriculture. 
Advances in precision livestock farming
 
This collection reviews recent advances in developing precision livestock technologies. It assesses developments in continuous, automated, real-time monitoring of production, health and welfare traits of livestock to improve the efficiency, welfare and environmental impact of livestock farming. 
Advances in plant phenotyping for more sustainable crop production
 
This collection reviews the wealth of research on advances in phenotyping and the influential role it plays in identifying the relative importance of genetic, environmental and agronomic factors in determining complex plant traits, such as yield and resource-use efficiency. 
Energy-smart farming: Efficiency, renewable energy and sustainability
 
This collection reviews research on methods implemented to reduce the costs and environmental impact of on-farm energy use, such as through the adoption of renewable forms of energy production, as well as utilising energy sources more wisely.

Is Climate-Smart Coffee Production Possible? 
 
With over 2.25 billion cups of coffee consumed daily, it’s no surprise that coffee is one of the most widely traded commodities in the world and is estimated to contribute over £10 billion to the UK economy each year. 
 
As a result of increased demand, the compounded average yearly growth rate for coffee production has risen by 1.9% in the last 50 years and 2.2% in the last two decades. 
Despite its clear economic importance and popularity, coffee production faces a number of challenges, primarily the sector’s need to reduce its carbon footprint and contribution to climate change. 
 
Recent research by a team from University College London, UK suggested that a single cup of coffee has a carbon footprint of anywhere from 0.28kg to 0.55kg. With over 9.5 billion kilograms of coffee produced each year, the sector’s total carbon footprint is sure to be astronomical.
