Special Issue "Advances and New Perspectives for Improving Abiotic Stress Tolerance in Cereals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 October 2023) | Viewed by 2185
Interests: mineral nutrition; water stress tolerance; photosynthesis; plant biochemistry
Environmental conditions affect the production and quality of cultivated plants, among which cereals are of major importance in securing human needs for food and fodder. The challenge to improve abiotic stress tolerance as well as to increase crop yield should be addressed with a vivid insight into the coping strategies of plants and their ability to grow in constantly changing environments. This SI aims to highlight advances and new perspectives in scientific research on sustaining plant productivity under stressful conditions and the development of tolerance mechanisms at the cellular, organ, and whole organism levels. We invite contributors proficient in all areas of plant and agricultural sciences dealing with physiology and crop breeding, including ecological, molecular, and genetic research approaches. Original papers, short communications, reviews, and methodical reports are welcome that contribute to extending current knowledge about stress tolerance mechanisms and their manifestation in cereal crops, along with agronomical and interdisciplinary works focused on improving yield under suboptimal environmental conditions.

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. Agronomy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
