Focus and Scope

Agriculture is defined as the science, art and practice of farming including crops and animals, with the industrial principle  that makes solar energy available to human utilization by fully use  the cycling function of nature. As an industry, agriculture can be approached through production system means that agriculture is similar to the process of converting input materials such as climate, soil, crop, capital, labour into finished products that have value in the market place including food and feed.

Agriculture sector is going to face enormous challenges in order to feed people through the increase of food production which is to be achieved in spite of the limited availability of arable land,  increasing need of fresh water and other less predictable factors. One way to address such challenges and increase the quality and quantity of agricultural production is using technology, because technology has played a central role in overcoming food security challenges in the past. The 20th century was marked a significant time in scientific research that contribute to historical food production increase. Science based agriculture hold great promise for tackling the worlds growing population and food demand.

Broader adoption of science and technology can enable to meet the growing food demand by improving the lifelihoods of farmers via producing more and high quality crops for a growing population, enhancing the nutritional value and safety of food to improve health and wellbeing of people around the world, and contributing to agricultural sustainability through reduced resource use. Future increase in agricultural productivity required an improved seeds that enable crops to withstand in environmental and biological stresses, crop protection solution, modern irrigation practices, fertilizer and mechanization. Meeting global food needs will demand an innovative science based solutions. Journal of Agricultural Technology Innovation (Agrinova) therefore will focus on input and output innovations such as planting materials, fertilizer, bio-pesticide, water management, devices and energy and even post harvest sectors. Innovation will be done also for social capital in term of community institution and business management. Such innovations  render  agricultural production more efficient  and profitable.

Checked Open Submissions Checked Indexed Checked Peer Reviewed

Peer Review Process

The submitted manuscript is first checked by assistant editor. The aim of the checking is to make a formatted manuscript (following template) and to identify plagiarism. The formatted manuscript as well as plagiarism result send to an editor by editor-in-chef based on the focus and scope. The editor would evaluate whether the manuscript is match with the focus and scope of Agrinova and plagiarism result has to be less than 20%. Every submitted manuscript which pass this step, later would be sent to two reviewers. Agrinova uses double blind review. The manuscript will pass to the reviewers anonymously. Reviewer comments are also sent anonymously to corresponding author to take the necessary actions and responses. Then, the editor would evaluate the revised manuscript and take a decision by considering reviewer’s recommendation among several possibilities: rejected, require major revision, need minor revision, or accepted. The editor of Agritech has the right to decide which manuscripts submitted to the journal should be published.


Publication Frequency

Agrinova published two times a year in December and June.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.


Publication Frequency

Agrinova publishes two times in a year i.e. November and May.
