Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The widespread use of synthetic fertilizers and chemical pesticide inputs in crop production influences soil biodiversity and quality. In addition, global climate changes threaten the stability of crops due to unexpected periods of drought and rainfall during growing seasons.
New methods of remediation of soil conditions have been developed by replenishing the biodiversity of microorganisms and restoring the proper soil microbiota. These methods, however, are still poorly understood, and broad action to disseminate the results is needed concerning innovative ways and mitigation plans on maintaining soil fertility and increasing its resilience against biotic and abiotic stresses.
We invite researchers carrying out the most innovative works in this topic to contribute with empirical data in controlled conditions, in fields, or metanalyses.
Papers dealing with fertilizers (especially slow-releasing fertilizers and nanofertilizers); plant growth-promoting microorganisms (AMF, endophytes, rhizospheric microorganisms); biological protection against pathogens, improvement of soil quality, tolerance to drought, etc.

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.
