Already consulted some of the Core Scientific Databases on the Home page and didn't find the information you need? Try consulting one of these options - these databases are especially well suited for research in Plant Science and Agronomy.
The Web of Science Core Collection provides comprehensive coverage of the sciences, social sciences, and arts, and humanities across journals, books and conference proceedings. It indexes more than 5,700 major journals across 164 scientific disciplines. The best database for finding what papers have cited other papers. Cited references can be traced forward in time.

The Alliance of Crop, Soil, and Environmental Science Societies (ACSESS) is composed of the American Society of Agronomy (ASA), the Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), and the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA). The ACSESS Digital Library is a complete collection of all content published by these societies. The Digital Library allows users to search and browse all the published literature of these societies simultaneously through a single platform.
Access to articles in the subject areas of Horticulture, Botany, Garden and Landscape Design, Ecology, Plant and Garden Conservation, Horticultural Therapy, and Sustainable Horticultural Design Practices.
AGRIS is the international information system for the agricultural sciences and technology. It was created by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in 1974, to facilitate information exchange and to bring together world literature dealing with all aspects of agriculture.
Provides access to the life sciences literature from more than 5,500 journals, books, conference proceedings, US patents, papers and posters, nomenclature rules, and taxonomic keys. Provides access to the traditional areas of biology, such as botany, zoology and microbiology, as well as related fields such as biomedical, agriculture, pharmacology and ecology. Interdisciplinary fields such as medicine, biochemistry, biophysics, bio-engineering and biotechnology are also included. Time span 1970-present.
"Plantae was developed to address the need for a community and knowledge foundation for the global plant science community, based on input and ideas from members of the community. It is a crowdsourced initiative powered by The American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) and represents our ongoing commitment to the plant science community.
Plantae has two main hubs:
1) Online community
2) Curated resource/learning hub
Here you will find the tools you need to grow your career, connect and collaborate with others, and learn new things."

SpringerProtocols (coverage from 1980-2017) is the largest electronic database of reproducible laboratory protocols, with over 25,000 reproducible laboratory protocols in biomedical and life sciences. Based on tried and tested resources, including the essential series Methods in Molecular Biology, it covers 15 comprehensive subject collections and offers researchers access to nearly thirty years' worth of easily reproducible, step-by-step protocols for immediate use in their lab. Written by renowned experts in the field and reviewed and approved by the prestigous editorial board for clarity, accuracy, and consistency, Springer Protocols is an invaluable resource for the modern research laboratory.
Covers the full spectrum of foods that have been hunted, gathered, cultivated, and domesticated; their nutritional makeup and sues; and their impact on human populations. It offers geographical perspective on the history and culture of food and drink and takes up subjects from food fads, prejudices, and taboos to questions of food toxins, additives, labeling and entitlements.
This encyclopedia covers the full range of life sciences research, highlighting structures, processes, methods, systems and applications. Its scope includes the molecular and cellular as well as the organismal level.
