This volume reviews research on building urban and peri-urban agricultural networks, the use of technologies such as rooftop and vertical farming systems, as well as providing case studies of particular products from urban farming.
This collection reviews current research on understanding nutrient cycles, the ways crops process nutrients, the environmental effects of fertilizer use and how this understanding can be used to improve nutrient use efficiency for a more resource-efficient and climate-smart agriculture.
This collection reviews advances in producing next-generation biofuels from plant materials. Part 1 discusses technologies such as biomass gasification, fast pyrolysis and torrefaction. Part 2 assesses advances in production of biofuels from crops such as jatropha, oilseeds, Miscanthus, switchgrass and willow.
This collection reviews advances in understanding barley physiology and genetics, molecular breeding and cultivation techniques, as well as disease and weed management. It also discusses advances in improving barley for end uses such as malting and brewing.
By focussing on soil health, Conservation Agriculture (CA) is seen as more sustainable than conventional production. This volume summarises research on key components for successful CA including no-till techniques, soil cover and cropping systems as well as the role of livestock and agroforestry.
Volume 2 reviews research on optimising Conservation Agricultural (CA) practices and their benefits. Chapters cover soil management, crop nutrition and irrigation, pest and disease management, as well as broader issues such as managing carbon, biodiversity and ecosystem services.
Postharvest losses remain a serious problem in the fresh produce sector. This book reviews advances in preservation and disinfection, monitoring and management techniques to optimise safety and quality of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Dairy cattle breeding faces challenges such as reduced genetic diversity and the improvement of production over functional traits. This book reviews the latest research on genetics, genetic diversity and advanced methods of genetic evaluation and selection.
Crop modelling has huge potential to improve decision making in farming. This book reviews advances in next-generation models focused on user needs at the whole farm system and landscape scale.

This 11-volume collection brings together research on sustainable agriculture. Topics covering Conservation Agriculture, climate change and the environmental impact of agriculture, as well as titles on urban agriculture and food losses and waste make this collection a must-have for those committed to feeding the growing population in the face of climate change.
This six-volume collection reviews the wealth of research on tropical, temperate and boreal forests as well as covering agroforestry, grassland management and climate change.
This ten-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 14-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 six-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 16-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.
