Special Issue Information
The Mediterranean basin is characterized by a climate which is advantageous to the cultivation of a wide variety of ornamental, vegetable, and fruit crops grown in greenhouses or outdoors. Agriculture in the Mediterranean basin is an important economic engine, not only for the economic value of fruits and vegetables, but also for the generation of knowledge and technology.
A fundamental aspect for the future of agriculture is to be able to bring together all this knowledge about: (i) the most suitable types of crops for each area, (ii) what farming techniques to apply, and (iii) the optimal technological level that allows obtaining the maximum possible profitability. This information should be made available to farmers to assist them in the planning of their farms.
In this Special Issue, we invite submissions from researchers to share their experiences in Mediterranean Agriculture: selection of the most suitable crops and varieties (horticultural or fruit, intensive or extensive), soil management techniques, optimization of water use, crop protection, harvesting techniques, climate control, technological advances, agrarian economy, etc.
