The African Crop Science Journal was established with the primary
objective of providing a forum for presentation and review of research
results on Tropical Crop Science that can be readily accessed by
researchers and development leaders in Africa and other developing
countries, and all those concerned with agricultural development issues
in the region. The most important characteristic of the Journal is that
it addresses in an integrated manner all aspects of Crop Science and
The Journal publishes original research papers dealing with Crop
Agronomy, Production, Genetics and Breeding, Germplasm, Crop
Protection, Soil Sciences, Postharvest Systems and Utilization,
Agroforestry, Crop-Animal Interactions, Environmental Issues and
Agricultural Information.

The Journal also publishes authoritative reviews on various aspects of
Crop Science, Agricultural Development, and the Environment, usually by
invitation, and "Short Communications" dealing with original results
not warranting publication as full papers. It has a book review and
advertisement sections. To encourage dialogue on topical issues, the
Journal has a "Forum Section" where issues of current contention in
crop production, including socioeconomics and rural development, will
be discussed.
