Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Crop canker and blight diseases caused by fungal pathogens are responsible for huge economic losses in agriculture and forest all over the world in all climatic zones. In recent decades, we have observed tremendous progress in phytopathological and molecular research as well as in developing new biocontrol solutions used to fight these diseases. In this Special Issue, we welcome original and review papers from all research areas dedicated to fungus-induced plant diseases such as canker and blight that can be found in all species of crop plants, especially including research on resistant and/or susceptible cultivars. Manuscripts on the biocontrol of fungal pathogens of crop species are of special importance, mostly due to the negative impact of climate changes caused by extreme temperatures and drought and/or flood.

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.

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.
