Editor-in-Chief (Crops and Soils) 
Prof. Gerrit Hoogenboom

Professor Gerrit Hoogenboom - University of Florida, Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering & Global Food Systems Institute

Keywords: Agricultural systems; Crop modelling and simulation; Decision support systems; Food and nutrition security; Agrometeorology and climatology; Climate change and variability.

Biography: Gerrit Hoogenboom is an agricultural engineer with a broad interest in systems analysis of agriculture for food security and sustainability. His research is focused on the development and application of dynamic crop simulation models and decision support systems. These models are applied at different spatial and temporal scales, ranging from gene-based modelling to precision agriculture and management; climate change impact assessment, adaptation, and mitigation; and long-term carbon sequestration and environmental sustainability.

Editor-in-Chief (Animals) 
Prof. Julian Wiseman

Professor Julian Wiseman - University of Nottingham, School of Biosciences 

Keywords: Non-ruminants; Carcass quality; Nutrition; Nutrition and reproduction interaction.

Biography: Julian Wiseman is Emeritus Professor of Animal Production and formerly Head of the Division of Animal Sciences at the University of Nottingham School of Biosciences, U.K. He gained a B.Sc. (Hons) in Agriculture with Biochemistry subsidiary from the University College of Wales and a Ph.D. from the University of Nottingham, where he did research on the energy value of diets for pigs. He was visiting scientist at the Station de Recherches Avicoles, Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, Tours, France in 1985 and completed a sabbatical at the University of Melbourne in 2000. His research interests are the nutritional value of raw materials, influence of processing variables, swine and poultry nutrition, animal responses to energy and nutrient intake, carcass and meat quality. He has published over 95 papers in international peer-reviewed journals, edited over 40 books and has presented over 140 papers at international conferences.
