Considerable progress has been made in pure plant science research in the last two decades, including our understanding of plant genomes. Nevertheless, relatively few novel ideas have been tested in a breeding context. Translational research should be adopted as a link between fundamental research and plant breeding, as it adds value to both disciplines. Despite the abundance of genomic information, however, a major challenge remains for the transfer of the language of genomics into practical applications. Speeding up the translation of genomics into plant breeding programs would lead to quicker and more accurate plant breeding progress. Crop translational research in the genomics era provides opportunities to discover and develop new breeding tools and to deliver early-warning agronomy tools for crops, particularly those with limited genomic resources. Translational research can accelerate with the use of novel tools of marker-aided selection, phenotyping, and speed breeding.
This Special Issue on the “Translational Research in Plant Breeding “ invites research and review articles combining cutting-edge bioscience with innovative agronomy in crops and trees. We especially encourage submission of manuscripts that involve transdisciplinary research.

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.
