Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
"Civilisation depends for continuance on the seed saved each year for planting the next." This evergreen statement of J.F. Cox focuses on the importance of seed propagation, and on the value of crop seed. The Special Issue is intended to cover a broad spectrum within seed production. Unlike conventional seed propagation studies, this volume would highlight problem areas of seed production. The first of them is seed dormancy that is rather diverse according to crop species as well as management techniques. The other field of the present volume is dedicated to viability including all genetic and agronomic factors of germination and vigour. A novel field of seed science is represented by proteomics and other biochemical characteristics that may influence the success of seed production and propagation. Finally abiotic and biotic factors of seed storage and postharvest manipulations are to be discussed.

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.
