In recent decades, there have been many changes in world agriculture, including crop production in particular. These changes include the development of cultivation technologies, use of fertilizers, pesticides, new machinery, methods of soil tillage and the cultivation of new varieties/hybrids. Meanwhile, new challenges have emerged in terms of the quality of plant products as a result of changing consumer expectations, from the processing industry and the field of related sciences (in human nutrition). In addition, quality testing methods have changed as an increasing number of instruments are introduced in the analytical process.
As a consequence, today, instead of atomic absorption instruments, element content is measured by ICP while a multitude of rheological analyses are used to classify winter wheat and flours. The use of HPLC measurement techniques in the study of biologically active compounds has become common as well. During these processes, we need to address the issues of how the parameterized quality of products changes in the transforming crop production. Meanwhile, we also need to provide data on the changes in quality that result from an increase in average temperature and the CO2 content of the air. The results of agronomic and climate-related term effects will also contribute to science with new results.
I cordially invite you to share the most important achievements of your research work with readers.

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.
