Food and Agricultural Sciences

Our food and agricultural sciences hub covers a range of research papers and news stories on the many processes involved in food cultivation and production. Subtopics include how animals and crops can influence the sustainability of farms and how to address food security and supply. From having suitable soil to climate change impacting our food products, we look at all of these aspects in our collated pages.

Overview

If you’re looking for the answers to questions such as ‘what is food science?’ and ‘what is agricultural science?’, you’ll find them here. This section provides two key articles on food and agricultural science and a changeable, exciting topic. Scientists write these posts to provide agricultural education and further information on food systems, agricultural productivity and similar matters.

Feature Articles

Our featured articles include a wide variety of topics under the food and agricultural sciences category. For example, what are the risks food chains face? What is vertical farming or how to develop sustainable foods? Our writers discuss food waste, antibiotic resistance in agriculture, using gene editing for plant health, and other fascinating matters relating to the development of food and the food industry.

Latest Food and Agricultural Sciences News and Research

Whether it’s a discovery regarding pesticides or a novel code in genome editing, this section will include all of the latest news from food and agricultural science. These news pieces will be collected from around the world to bring you a range of discoveries and interesting facts on how we cultivate food and more.
