Over the summer, the climate crisis dominated the headlines, with food security severely hampered by the increasing world population and the occurrence of severe environmental condition changes and meteorological events.
Abiotic stresses can impact crop yields terribly; thus, understanding the molecular and physiological bases of the tolerance mechanisms triggered during abiotic stresses, together with a deep characterization of contrasting phenotypes, are key aspects for addressing the needs of more tolerant crops. Droughts, heat, cold, salinity, heavy metal pollution, mineral deficiency and ultraviolet radiation limit plant growth and development, leading to yield reductions worldwide.
This Special Issue aims to collect reviews and original paper covering advances in understanding the tolerance to abiotic stresses and focusing on stress mitigation strategies, including novel approaches spanning the characterization of novel genetic materials, the exploitation of genetic resources and the use of novel agrochemical inputs to promote the plant defense response to abiotic stresses.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agriculture is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
