The Journal of Agriculture and Rural Development in the Tropics and Subtropics is a peer reviewed journal that publishes papers and short communications dealing with research in the Tropics and Subtropics in the fields of plant production, animal nutrition and animal husbandry, soil science, agricultural economy and farm management, forestry.Agriculture and forestry are major human activities on the global landscape.

Increasingly, data show that many widely employed agricultural and forestry practices are having significant adverse effects on local and regional soil conditions, water quality, biological diversity, climatic patterns, and long-term biological and agricultural productivity.Thus, water plays a critical role in providing livelihood opportunities and sustaining the health and welfare of rural families around the world.

Water resources and rural development publishes papers describing the role of water resources in supporting livelihood activities in rural areas. Our primary interest is in the impacts of water.
