Advances in measuring soil health
This volume begins with a review of advances in measuring soil biological activity. Parts 2 and 3 survey developments in measuring soil physical and chemical properties. The collection concludes by reviewing soil health indicators and decision support systems for improving soil management. 
Developing animal feed products
This volume reviews key research and the challenges faced in developing new livestock feed products that promote growth whilst also enhancing both product quality and safety. This collection also summarises recent key developments in the sector, including a better understanding of gut function and the need to replace antibiotics 
Improving the nutritional and nutraceutical properties of wheat and other cereals
This volume reviews the key research on the nutritional components of cereals, their interactions with the gut, the way processing can inhibit or optimise their benefits and what it means for developing the next generation of nutritionally-enhanced cereal products. 
Genome editing for precision crop breeding
Part 1 of this volume reviews advances in gene editing techniques such as insertion-based genome edits, base editing, guide RNAs and CRIST/Cas off targeting. Part 2 surveys applications of gene editing in key cereal and vegetable crops. 
Plant genetic resources: A review of current research and future needs
This collection surveys the wealth of research addressing the challenges facing agriculture, such as maintaining and benefitting from plant genetic diversity. It assesses ways of valuing and monitoring plant genetic diversity and discusses advances in in-situ and ex-situ strategies for conserving plant genetic diversity. 
Understanding the behaviour and improving the welfare of dairy cattle
This collection summarises and reviews the wealth of research relating specifically to dairy cattle, including understanding behaviour, monitoring welfare and improving current welfare practices. 
Advances in horticultural soilless culture
This collection reviews current research on optimising substrates for soilless cultivation and assesses recent advances in technologies, such as fertigation systems and process control. Case studies on a range of horticultural crops feature throughout as a means of depicting examples of practical application. 
Understanding the behaviour and improving the welfare of pigs
This collection reviews the genetic and developmental factors that affect pig behaviour and assesses ways of optimising pig welfare at different stages of production, from breeding to slaughter. 
Understanding and improving crop root function
Part 1 in this collection reviews recent research on understanding root system architecture and growth together key interactions in the rhizosphere. Parts 2 and 3 assess how roots respond to biotic and abiotic stresses whilst Part 4 explores how this understanding can be used to optimise root function. 
The sustainable intensification of smallholder farming systems
This volume reviews recent research on effective support to improve smallholder livelihoods. After discussing the economics of smallholder farming, the book looks at access to key inputs before assessing ways of improving extension and other services to support sustainable production practices.

New book explores ensuring safe development of new animal feed products 
The animal feed sector faces increasingly complex challenges, such as the need to improve feed digestibility/efficiency whilst also promoting growth and enhancing both product quality and safety. 
With animal health and welfare a priority for those involved in the livestock value chain - from farmers and producers, to retailers and consumers - it's essential that the development of new animal feed products undergo the correct assessments to be deemed as viable and safe for consumption by animals.

NEW Review in Hatchery Practice 
‘This book gives a good overall review of the advances that have recently occurred in the fields of poultry genetics and genomics…one thing that really struck me about this book was the calibre of the editorial team and the international range and expertise of the contributing authors.  
With over 550 pages this book is well worth its place on the bookshelf of anyone who is interested in poultry breeding and genomics.’ (International Hatchery Practice)
