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.
This collection reviews research on phytochemicals in fruits and vegetables, their health benefits and ways these benefits can be optimised to improve human health.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This collection explores recent developments in integrated weed management that embrace a more holistic, landscape-based agroecological approach, including the application of technology to allow more informed decision-making and more targeted solutions.
This collection reviews current advances in integrated pest management (IPM) for horticultural crops, including the use of biological control mechanisms, technological developments such as proximal sensors, agronomic practices and physical control.
This collection reviews and summarises our current understanding of the functional and nutritional properties of milk to ensure it can be optimised both as a food and as a key ingredient in dairy products.
Conservation Agriculture (CA) seeks to understand the ecological basis of sustainability, whilst making better use of soil as a key resource in farming. Following on from previous volumes that discussed the systems, science, practice and benefits of CA, Volume 3 reviews the adoption and spread of CA in different regions around the world.

'Go-To' Manual Reviews Alternative Approaches to Tackling Disease in Poultry
Diseases remain a significant burden to poultry production, with outbreaks of disease resulting in catastrophic financial losses to the sector. For example, the combined annual global cost of Campylobacter spp. and Salmonella spp. in poultry has been estimated at over $8.5 million.
Whilst vaccines have a major role in inducing protection against such diseases, they can be only be viewed as part of the solution to this increasing problem. An alternative and more sustainable approach to tackling disease threat is through the optimisation of poultry flock health.
A new book, published by award-winning publisher Burleigh Dodds Science Publishing, has collated the key research into one place, creating a ‘go-to’ manual for anyone interested in poultry health.
