Special Issue in Plants: Molecular Strategies for Improving Agronomic Traits in Crops
Special Issue Information
Abiotic stresses, which include heavy metals, salinity, aluminum, drought, waterlogging, and extreme temperature, are major constraints in global agricultural soils that limit crop growth and reduce both crop productivity and quality. Improving crop abiotic stress tolerance is of great significance to ensure food safety production around the world. Thus, strategies are needed for crops to improve their adaptation to abiotic stresses. Therefore, this Special Issue, entitled “Strategies for Enhancing Abiotic Stress Tolerance in Crops”, aims to highlight a range of reviews, perspectives and research articles on:
- Plant growth regulators for improving abiotic stress tolerance in crops and their physiological and molecular mechanisms;
- Understanding of the genetic architecture and identification of the genetic loci underlying abiotic stress tolerance using QTL methods;
- Identification of key genes responsible for abiotic stress tolerance;
- Molecular strategies to enhance abiotic stress tolerance using genome editing and overexpression technology;
- Big data analysis.
Considering your expertise in the field, we would like to invite you to submit related papers to us.

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 2200 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.
