The Journal of Tropical Agriculture is a peer-reviewed international journal that publishes scientific articles concerned with all aspects of crop science, agroecosystem management and conservation, and in particular the application of biological, engineering, ecological, and social knowledge to the management of agricultural crops in the tropics including plantation and horticultural crops. The journal has been published since 1961—initially as the “Agricultural Research Journal of Kerala,” and renamed in 1993 to reflect the changing needs and relevance of the contents.
