Special Issue Information
Modern agriculture faces many challenges. Among the most important is feeding the ever-growing human population with environmentally friendly methods. Hence, there is a growing interest in sustainable agriculture, which aims to ensuring world food security through nurturing healthy ecosystems and supporting the environmentally friendly management of land, water and natural resources. Nowadays, sustainable agriculture must answer the question of how to increase the yield potential of crops per acre or hectare without harming the environment. For this reason, sustainable agriculture is based on varieties of crops bred for high performance under different environmental conditions. Soil tillage systems also can play a key role as one of the most important factors to improve crop production. Furthermore, an indispensable element of sustainable agriculture is biodiversity and the abandonment of monocultures. This Special Issue focuses on the most recent and important findings related to “Sustainable Nutrient Management in Agricultural Production”, such as the application of environmentally friendly fertilizers, seed inoculations, biodiversity, mulching, rotating crops, planting cover crops and using different kinds of reduced soil tillage systems. These practices can lead to improvements in plant nutrition and high performance. All types of articles, such as original research and reviews, are welcome.
