At present, mineral fertilizers and plant protection products are not a sufficient solution to obtain the expected yield increase. Therefore, attention should be focused on modern preparations improving the condition of plants, which include growth regulators based on organic compounds (hormones, amino acids) or mineral compounds (metal salts). A significant advantage of using these substances is the increase in the economic value of crops, and the increase in plant resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses. Growth regulators can be used to increase agricultural productivity in adverse climatic conditions. According to the available literature, the most effective substances are those involved in all stages of plant development, from seed germination, through vegetative growth, differentiation and organogenesis, flower induction and formation, embryogenesis, fruiting and ripening.
This Special Issue focuses on the development and evaluation of the possibility of using preparations regulating the growth and development of crops, which in turn results in an improvement in their yield. I encourage to publish interdisciplinary research in the basic and applied sciences. This Special Issue will include articles presenting original research in biological and chemical sciences as well as agriculture, horticulture, forestry and engineering. There is also the possibility of sending works about weather, opinions and reviews.

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.
