Feeding the world’s population through research in agricultural science 

With over 100 published titles and an extensive forward programme, our books provide the key research topics and themes across agricultural science, covering crops, livestock and forestry. This includes each step on the value chain for their production, from breeding through to harvest and the final product.  

Our books are designed from extensive customer feedback and are edited and written by internationally renowned experts. Through our publications we will help researchers identify key issues and trends and find their way more quickly to the research most useful to them, allowing them to plan their own research programmes and link up to other research centres to collaborate more effectively. 

In addition, all the content is thematically organised into a searchable database.

  • It provides unique access to reviews of key research and trends from 4000+ internationally recognised experts
  • Is continuously updated with new content to further achieving sustainable agriculture
  • Utilise this wealth of knowledge as a tool to improve product development or inform best practice on the farm
  • Empowers users to contribute to achieving a more sustainable agriculture

Each month we add new and exciting content on topics such as energy-smart farming, sensor technology, fostering soil carbon sequestration, as well as livestock health, welfare and optimising the quality of meat products.

Knowledge Exchange in Agriculture in the UK is diverse, with many organisations involved. That is part of the reason for creating Farm-PEP, to help provide connections to what many percieve as a fragmented landscape.

This Open Access chapter describes the current status of IWM for grasslands. Its focus is on management practices available to influence transitions in a weed’s life cycle: from the soil seed bank to seedling establishment, from the seedling stage to the mature plant, and from the mature plant to the soil seed bank.

This chapter covers the definition of biostimulants, brief summary of various categories, and how they are used for promoting plant growth, building soil structure, imparting stress tolerance, and contribute to pest and disease suppression. Strategies for using biostimulants as a part of IPM and some challenges and future opportunities were also discussed.
