Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Weather conditions have a significant impact on the growth, development, and yield of crop plants. The extent of this phenomenon is difficult to estimate, as each species and variety behaves differently. It is, therefore, crucial to determine their impact on yield using mathematical models that describe the meteorological phenomena in question and explain the processes in the soil–plant–atmosphere system.

Adapting and preparing agriculture for the observed and projected changes in climate conditions is urgently needed and requires the involvement of water users, whose decisions directly affect the availability and quality of water in rural areas. With droughts and agricultural water shortages predicted to become more frequent, water is becoming a strategic asset for both present and future generations. Therefore, measures to adapt plants to climate change and combat the negative effects of various stresses, including drought, high or low temperatures, and salinity, are extremely important. A detailed study and understanding of the importance of meteorological phenomena in plant cultivation are essential to achieving productive yields and food security.

The main topics covered in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Estimating the water needs of crops;
  • Methods for adapting plants to climate change;
  • Precision and water-saving irrigation;
  • Yield estimation based on regional climate models;
  • Impact of extreme weather events on crop production;
  • Research into new crop varieties resistant to different conditions;
  • Plant yield after the application of fertilizers and agro-technical treatments;
  • Effects of biotic and abiotic stresses on plants and their parameters.

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. Atmosphere 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 2400 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.
