CABI is an international, inter-governmental, not-for-profit organization that improves people’s lives by providing information and applying scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment.

Through knowledge sharing and science, CABI helps address issues of global concern such as improving global food security and safeguarding the environment. We do this by helping farmers grow more and lose less of what they produce, combating threats to agriculture and the environment from pests and diseases, protecting biodiversity from invasive species, and improving access to agricultural and environmental scientific knowledge. Our 49 member countries guide and influence our core areas of work, which include development and research projects, microbial services and scientific publishing.

A quote from the Editor-in-Chief

Niklaus GrünwaldCABI Agriculture and Bioscience fills an unmet need in the global science publishing landscape. We publish multidisciplinary, multinational research reflecting both large and incremental advances in science. We might publish, for example, economic research that integrates climate change, pest management, and big data. By providing an outlet for both primary and transdisciplinary studies, we’ve created a home for science directly relevant to feeding the planet’s growing populations.”
