Announcing three new collections

Recent advances on egg parasitoids of agricultural insect pests: This Special Collection will focus on current knowledge and advances in the biology, ecology, rearing technology, field application, risk assessment as well as potential integration in Integrated Pest Management programs of egg parasitoids, with the aim to promote their potential use as biological control against major pests.

Gender and Agriculture: Integrating a gender perspective in agriculture is important to realize gender equality and women’s empowerment in the agriculture sector. 

International Year of Millets: As 2023 has been declared the International Year of Millets, CABI Agriculture & Bioscience is launching a special collection focused on millets, covering production, protection, economics, marketing, post-harvest processing and popularization.

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.”

Niklaus Grünwald, Editor-in-Chief, North America
