Horticultural science

Horticultural science

CABI's range of horticulture online resources, journals and books covers the entire range of horticultural crops grown for food, amenity, industrial uses and health. The subject has expanded over the years to cover all areas of plant science, from molecular biology to crop production and storage, and includes aspects of a number of related subjects, such as soil science and engineering, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of horticulture.

We source literature from around the world to provide information and develop knowledge and skills in the science and production of crops growing in the tropics, subtropics and temperate zones, outdoors and in greenhouses, using techniques suitable for production systems ranging from small-scale enterprises to extensive and intensive high technology systems.


New in 2016: Horticulture Science

In June 2016 we launched Horticultural Science, an internet resource covering tropical, subtropical and temperate crops and regions. It is an essential resource for scientists, researchers, students and all those who need to keep up-to-date with current research and trends in horticultural science.


Coming in 2017: Horticulture Compendium

Our horticulture team is currently developing an online encyclopedic authoritative source of datasheets covering the characteristics, cultivation, harvesting and postharvest aspects of horticultural food crops, including chapter-like articles on topics of overarching interest to horticulture. The Horticulture Compendium will be an exciting addition to CABI’s Compendium series
