Agriculture & International Development

CABI’s products help researchers and policymakers develop strategies that support agriculture and the environment, and ultimately improve livelihoods.

Agriculture is one of CABI’s core areas of expertise and knowledge. We have been providing information on agriculture since 1913 and publish resources covering applied economics and sociology, biofuels, agricultural engineering, agricultural entomology, livestock, rural development, sustainable agriculture and the sugar industry. Our resources are suitable for both users working in scientific research and practitioners in the field.

International development is the process of improving the quality of life and economic wellbeing of people. CABI has been collating information on the issues affecting livelihoods and economies globally since 1959. Our resources enable extension workers to provide better advice to smallholder farmers on agricultural practice, helping them lose less of their crops to pests and diseases, improve crop quality and yield, and sell their produce for better prices.
