Launched in 1982, Biological Agriculture & Horticulture was for many years the only internationally recognised journal fully dedicated to biological or organic agriculture. It retains a leading position in the publication of high quality original research, comparative studies and reviews in organic and sustainable agriculture.
The journal publishes work related to the many factors contributing to the development of sustainable agriculture, horticulture and forestry in both temperate and tropical conditions. Over the years, Biological Agriculture & Horticulture has acquired an outstanding reputation for the publication of seminal works in areas or organic agriculture including soil fertility and management, composting, biological control methods, food quality evaluation and the development of appropriate agricultural technologies.
Biological Agriculture and Horticulture is currently seeking to publish high quality papers in the fields of: Organic agriculture, Sustainable agriculture, Organic food, Agroecology
To demonstrate the high quality of articles published in Biological Agriculture & Horticulture, free access is currently available to the following articles pertinent to the fields mentioned above:

Since 1996, the journal has been edited by Prof Phil Harris of the Centre for Agroecology and Food Security, Coventry University, UK. Phil has more than thirty years experience researching and publishing in the field of sustainable agriculture, and in the development of organic agriculture in many countries across the world.
“Growing concerns about environmental sustainability and food security have placed alternative approaches to agriculture firmly in the spotlight. Biological Agriculture & Horticulture is well placed to maintain its strong role in publishing first class research to support the mainstreaming of a more agroecological approach to food systems”.
