The New Zealand Journal of Agricultural Research publishes original research papers, review papers, short communications, book reviews, letters, and forum articles. We welcome submissions on all aspects of animal and pastoral science relevant to temperate and subtropical regions. The journal’s subject matter includes sustainable agriculture, soil science, fertilisers, insect pests, plant pathology, weeds, forage crops, management systems, agricultural economics, agronomy, and animal science. The journal also accepts crossover papers on subjects such as land-water interactions.
