Aims and Scope: Organic Agriculture

Organic Agriculture provides a platform for the sharing of knowledge on all aspects of Organic Agriculture and Food Systems. The journal features scientific articles on a range of topics, including, but not exclusively:

-  Arable crop production
-  Vegetable production
-  Soil fertility
-  Nutrient management
-  Plant breeding
-  Crop health and weed management
-  Comparison of cropping systems
-  Livestock husbandry and breeding
-  Livestock health and nutrition
-  Farm management
-  Quality of organic products
-  Socioeconomics
-  Natural resources and agro-ecology
-  Research methodology, on-farm research and innovative knowledge transfer

Drawing on systems approaches within Organic Agriculture, the journal welcomes original interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary papers alongside the reports of focussed disciplinary studies that accord with the principles of Organic Agriculture. We also welcome papers which take a critical approach to one or more aspects of organic agriculture and/or initiate critical discussions of the principles on a scientific basis. The journal will also include scientific reviews, invited papers on topical issue, overviews of the status of Organic Agriculture in particular regions / countries and technical notes which draw together the results of a number of research studies in a format suitable for wider application
