Advances in plant factories - Cover image
This collection reviews the wealth of research on vertical farms or plant factories with artificial lighting (PFALs). It summarises key research both on improving process efficiency and produce quality of horticultural crops such as fruit and vegetables, ornamentals and herbs. 
Advances in ensuring the microbiological safety of fresh producer - Cover
This collection reviews the wide range of research on preventing microbial contamination of fresh fruit and vegetables, from understanding key pathogens to ways of detecting and preventing contamination across the supply chain. 
Modelling climate change impacts on agricultural systems - Cover
This collection summarises the wealth of research on ways to improve models predicting the impact of climate change on agricultural systems, as well as their application to understanding impacts in particular regions. 
Key issues in agricultural ethics - Cover
This collection explores key ethical debates surrounding agriculture and agri-food supply chains, including issues such as animal welfare, use of labour, the effects of new technologies and the overall impact of agriculture on the environment. It considers the ways these ethical dilemmas may be better understood and potentially resolved. 
Embryo development and hatchery practice in poultry production - Cover image
This collection reviews the latest research on embryo development, as well as the effects of incubation and the hatching stage on chick health, welfare and production traits. 
Advances in understanding insect pests affecting wheat and other cereals - Cover image
This collection reviews the wealth of research on understanding insect population dynamics, novel pest invasions, the effects of changing production systems, plant-pathogen-interactions, detection, forecasting and decision support for integrated pest management techniques to control major insect pests affecting wheat and other cereals. 
Advances in monitoring of native and invasive insect pests of crops - Cover image
Early detection of insect pests is critical to successful integrated pest management (IPM) programmes. This collection reviews the wealth of research on improving monitoring techniques for the detection of both native and alien insect pests. 
Sustainable production and postharvest handling of avocado
Avocado is one of the world’s most economically important subtropical/tropical fruit crops. This collection considers how global avocado production can be improved to meet the growing demand for the fruit, focussing primarily on how the different components of the avocado supply chain can be optimised to achieve this. 
Advances in sustainable dairy cattle nutrition
This collection reviews the wealth of research on recent advances in improving dairy cattle nutrition to balance the needs of animals with minimising the environmental impact of both livestock feed and dairy production. 
Advances in sensor technology for sustainable crop production
This collection reviews key advances in sensor technology, including developments in proximal and remote sensing techniques to measure and monitor crop health, weeds and diseases.

Book Review Published in: Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems  

“The editor indeed took great care that all aspects of carbon sequestration are considered. In summary, we do not hesitate to call this book a true soil carbon sequestration bible. We highly recommend the book to students, researchers at any stage of their career as well as governmental and non-governmental organizations working on climate mitigation and related topics. We trust that the knowledge contained in this book will make a much-needed difference regarding global soil carbon status not only from a climate point of view, but also for the benefit of soil health in general.” (Dr Else K. Bünemann, FiBL, Switzerland) 

Book Review Published in: Journal of Dairy Research  

“As Editor, Alexander Hristov has gathered together some scientifically excellent contributions from a very select group of eminent animal nutrition experts to create an up to date, readable and comprehensive account of dairy cow nutrition. So, where there have been ‘Advances’ I am confident they will have been covered. Talking to colleagues, enthusiasm was expressed for the quality of the research covered, and I have little doubt that this book will find a place on many bookshelves.” (Professor C. Knight Institute of Veterinary Clinical and Animal Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark)
