The journal aims to advance communication among scientists in disparate fields who share a common interest in tropical agriculture and to narrow the gap between research workers, farm managers, and extension personnel in the field for mutual benefit. The scope of the journal includes all agroecosystems in the tropics. Papers dealing with original research results, critical reviews, and short communications on any aspect of tropical agriculture are welcome.

The Journal publishes papers concerned with the advance of agriculture and land resources in a small tropical island.  It publishes original scientific work related to strategic and applied studies in all aspects of agricultural science and exploited species and reviews of scientific topics of current agricultural relevance. Specific topics of interest include all aspects of crop and animal physiology, socioeconomic agriculture, modelling of crop and animal systems, the scientific underpinning of agronomy and husbandry, animal welfare and behaviour, soil science, plant and animal product quality, food science and technology plant and animal nutrition, post-harvest technology and management,  engineering solutions, decision support systems, land use, environmental impacts of agriculture and forestry, impacts of climate change, rural biodiversity, environmental law.
