Journal of Horticultural Science & Biotechnology

This year, the Journal of Horticultural Science & Biotechnology (JHSB) celebrates its 100th birthday. The Journal is one of the oldest Plant Science journals and the JHSB plans to mark this milestone with a number of features and specially commissioned articles published throughout 2019.

This article collection includes a selection of past papers from the journal, highlighting research areas where the JHSB has published key research findings, and also a collection of new “Centenary Reviews” presenting retrospective and future viewpoints on horticulture
