Special Issue "Abiotic Stress Tolerance in Brassica Species: From Molecular Laboratories to Field Trials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 February 2024 | Viewed by 2834
Interests: plant genetics and breeding; plant heterosis and utilisation of hybrid vigour; plant germplasm resources and genetic diversity; marker-assisted selection and genomic selection in plant breeding
Climate change is a big issue affecting crop production worldwide, and Brassica crops are currently facing severe challenges caused by various abiotic stressors, including drought, heat, frost, salinity stresses, and limited nutritional use efficiency, etc. Nowadays, much of the current research is focused on the response to a single stressor under controlled environments and does not reflect actual on-paddock exposure to multiple stressors. Heat and drought stress, for example, is increasing during the growing season due to climate change, and warm winters and spring heat waves are promoting new interactions between multiple stressors. This Special Issue will incorporate studies from molecular laboratories to field trials, address abiotic stress tolerance in Brassica species for a better understanding of current phenomics and genomics achievements, and facilitate breeding in Brassica species.

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.
