Reconciling agricultural production with biodiversity conservation
 
The first part of this volume assesses general issues such as landscape approaches, mapping and assessing the economic value of biodiversity. Part 2 reviews management practices promoting biodiversity such as field margins, hedgerows, improved pasture management and agroforestry. 
Advances in postharvest management of cereals and grains
 
This collection provides a comprehensive review of the latest research on the causes of postharvest cereal losses, as well as the key research on the detection and control of fungal contaminants. 
Biostimulants for sustainable crop production
 
Biostimulants stimulate natural processes in crops to enhance nutrient uptake, nutrient use efficiency (NUE), resistance to abiotic stress and quality traits. This collection reviews key advances in understanding and using biostimulants. 
Advances in poultry genetics and genomics
 
This collection begins by reviewing current challenges facing poultry breeding. It goes on to review recent research on the genetics of key production and functional traits. The book then summarises key advances in genomic selection techniques and concludes by surveying emerging trends such as the use of epigenetics and genome editing in poultry breeding. 
Improving rumen function
 
Part 1 summarises advances in analysing the rumen microbiome. Part 2 reviews recent research on different types of rumen microbiota. Part 3 discusses the way the rumen processes nutrients whilst Part 4 explores nutritional strategies to optimise rumen function. 
Climate change and agriculture
 
Climate change is the biggest challenge agriculture faces. Part 1 of this collection reviews current research on the impacts of climate change on agriculture. Part 2 assesses what we know about the contribution of agriculture to climate change, whilst Part 3 surveys mitigation strategies to achieve a more ‘climate-smart’ agriculture. 
Achieving sustainable cultivation of ornamental plants
 
This collection reviews recent research in ornamentals. Part 1 discusses advances in understanding plant physiology, genetic diversity and breeding techniques. Part 2 surveys advances in cultivation techniques in areas such as nutrition, irrigation, protected cultivation and pest management. 
Improving data management and decision support systems in agriculture
 
Part 1 reviews general issues underpinning effective decision support systems (DSS) such as data access, standards, tagging and security. Part 2 contains case studies of the practical application of DSS in areas such as crop planting and nutrition, livestock feed and pasture management as well as supply chains. 
Preventing food losses and waste to achieve food security and sustainability
 
This volume provides a comprehensive review of the causes and prevention of food losses and waste (FLW) at key steps in the supply chain for different commodities and across different regions. 
Biopesticides for sustainable agriculture
With increasing concern about the environmental impact of synthetic pesticide use, this book reviews the wealth of research on identifying, developing, assessing and improving the growing range of biopesticides.

NEW Blog: The Rise of Biostimulants 
 
Biostimulants stimulate natural processes in crops to enhance nutrient uptake, nutrient use efficiency (NUE), resistance to abiotic stress and quality traits, as well as increasing the presence of nutrients in the soil or rhizosphere. 
 
Various types of biostimulants currently exist that claim to stimulate the natural nutrition processes of plants and crops. These include: 
 
• Humic substances 
• Seaweed extracts 
• Protein hydrolysates 
• Silicon 
• Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) 
• Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF)
