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.
This collection summarises current research on the structure and function of the gastrointestinal tract in pigs, the factors that can influence its effectiveness, as well as the nutritional strategies that can improve gut development and optimise gut function.
This collection provides an authoritative assessment of the current issues challenging the safety of agri-food supply chains and the recent technological developments implemented to improve safety and quality at all levels.
This collection summarises and reviews the wealth of recent research on the development of more environmentally friendly biological methods to control plant diseases.
This collection reviews advances in the key areas required to achieve durable disease resistance in cereal crops, from advances in understanding pathogen biology/epidemiology and plant pathogen interactions to identifying sources of resistance and advance techniques for breeding new varieties.

New book reviews integrated approach to tackling weeds
By outcompeting crops for resources, weeds have been – and continue to be – a significant obstacle for farmers. For example, in the United States alone, weeds have been estimated to cause annual losses of $33 billion.
Needing to protect their livelihoods, farmers have relied on the use of herbicides to control weed outbreaks. However, farmers' reliance on herbicides is threatened both by the growing problem of herbicide resistance and concerns about the impact of herbicide use on the environment.
A new book published by award-winning publisher Burleigh Dodds Science, Advances in integrated weed management takes a deep dive into a more sustainable solution.

NEW Review in the International Journal of Dairy Technology
"The book contains many contributions informed by recent research. These will be of value to nutritionists, dairy scientists and technologists working in research, industrial and teaching roles…the editors have achieved their aim of producing a reference work that addresses the nutritional and functional properties of milk and its contribution to human nutrition. It is a valuable reference source for dairy professionals." (International Journal of Dairy Technology)
