With the increasing global human population, there is a continuous demand for food supply and climate change scenarios pose an additional threat to agricultural production worldwide. Therefore, we rely on continuous genetic gains and genetically driven approaches for crop improvement. The identification of loci for agronomic traits and their genetic characterisation are crucial for breeding new varieties. The introduction of new adaptive alleles in diverse genetic backgrounds helps to improve grain yield or develop newer crop varieties to balance supply and demand globally. The availability of large-scale genomic resources provides an opportunity to discover genetic and molecular mechanisms behind plant responses to different environmental stresses. Integrating various omics technologies into routine breeding pipelines will support the delivery of cultivars with robust yield and improved quality. In this Special Issue, we aim to bring together research papers and reviews on using plant genetic and genomic resources for enhancing key agronomic traits in the current plant breeding scenario.

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.
