A sustainable increase in global food production is fundamental to feeding the world. As sessile organisms, crops are constantly exposed to environmental stresses. There is an increasing demand to develop resilient cropping systems that are stable and resilient to erratic and extreme climates. From the perspective of breeding, crop cultivars fitting the systems should feature either the ability to withstand a perturbation or the ability to recover from it effectively. Therefore, understanding the genetic basis of the crop's traits dynamically responding to the solar-soil-atmosphere conditions is critical to the successful implementation of resilient cropping systems.
Over the past decades, breeding innovations have contributed greatly to global food security amid the changing environment. Modern technologies including genomics-assisted breeding, phenomic selection and transgenic breeding have been broadening the horizon of climate-resilient crops. This Special Issue on “Breeding Innovations in Crop for Resilient Cropping Systems” welcomes the submission of review and research papers or short communications on the following topics: crop genetics and genomics associated with environmental adaptation; crop phenomics theory, methods and applications; integrated cultivation and management measures in supporting the resilient cropping systems.

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.
