Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Satisfying the increasing consumer demand for a high yield of high-quality crops is one of the most important missions of modern agricultural research. Breeders aim to achieve this goal through the selection of progeny combining robust traits of their parental lines. The application of molecular markers in breeding programs is no doubt an efficient way to accelerate the improvement in genetic gain of crops. Advances in genomics, transcriptomes, and proteomics technologies have successfully promoted the discovery and application of molecular markers in crop-breeding programs.

This Special Issue focuses on the development and application of molecular markers in subtropical crop breeding for genetic improvement. This issue will include interdisciplinary studies embracing agriculture with disciplines of agronomy, biology, mathematics, and engineering. Research articles will cover a broad range of this area from subtropical crops, including vegetable crops, ornamental crops, and hemp crops, as well as field crops. All types of articles, including original research, opinions, and reviews, are welcome.

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.
