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.
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.

New book reviews ways of reducing on-farm costs and energy-use
The global food supply system accounts for around one third of global end-use energy demand and is responsible for a quarter of the total greenhouse gas emissions produced worldwide.
Of this figure, an estimated 15% of these emissions are produced as a result of heat, electricity and fuel use to aid on-farm production activities.
A new book published by award-winning publisher Burleigh Dodds Science, Energy-smart farming: Efficiency, renewable energy and sustainability, reviews how farmers can optimise their on-farm energy usage, whilst also reducing their individual environmental impact and on-farm costs.

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)
