Special Issue "Advances in the Industrial Crops"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 22 December 2023 | Viewed by 3231
Industrial crops have significantly improved the quality of human life. However, the changing climate and declining soil quality have become major threats to the sustainability of industrial crops, resulting in lower incomes for families, regions, and even countries. Adaptable crop resources, tillage methods, and new ideas that could improve the production and quality of industrial crops should be prioritized. In this regard, industrial crops, including oil crops, fiber crops, medicinal plants, and other important economic crops, such as tobacco, will increasingly become an important topic of research. This Special Issue will consider any aspect of the comprehensive studies of industrial crops, including but not limited to the agronomy, physiology, methods, genetics, and breeding of industrial crops. Studies on the growth and performance of industrial crops under stress, especially saline–alkali stress, are particularly encouraged. In this Special Issue, we aim to exchange knowledge on any aspect related to the yiled, quality, and abiotic stress of industrial crops, thus facilitating their increased adoption and utilization in order to address the challenges faced by humans against the background of a changing climate.
