Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Agriculture is defined as the art and science of growing crops and raising livestock, including the manufacturing of plant and animal products for use by humans. This activity provides not only raw food and ornamental produce, but also a plethora of derived edible products, as well as fabrics and building materials.

This Special issue aims to gather high-quality articles that contribute novel insights into all topics related to the composition, quality, safety, and security of agricultural produce and derived products (fresh-cut products, oil, wine, juices, etc.). We welcome submissions that address all aspects of science and technology related to produce quality (chemistry, sensory, pathology, nutritional, health-promoting properties), postharvest handling, processing and manipulation (quality evaluation, preservation, storage, packaging, commercial handling, trade, and distribution).

Both original research and review papers are welcome. In order to encourage broader participation and to attract a wider range of high-quality submissions, publication charges for all accepted papers will be waived. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
