About Grasses


Grasses (ISSN 2813-3463) is an international and scholarly open access journal that publishes peer-reviewed research papers, review articles, short communications and technical notes. There is no restriction on the length of papers. The aim of Grasses is to publish research in all fundamental and applied fields of grass and sustainable cropping systems, including grass and forage production and quality, monitoring and utilization. Authors are also invited to submit papers on non-agronomy aspects of grassland and livestock management, such as environmental implications, sustainable management, conservative and regenerative agriculture, or energy production when grasslands are involved as in the case of agrivoltaics. In-depth literature, systematic and meta-analysis reviews are also welcome.
