We welcome submissions on biotechnology, entomology, plant nutrition, breeding, pathology, indoor and urban horticulture, postharvest physiology, soil science, viticulture, biosecurity, new crop and horticultural products, and descriptions of new cultivar releases. The journal welcomes work on tree and field crops, and particularly encourages contributions on kiwifruit, apples and wine grapes.
