Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue aims to bring together cutting-edge research and innovative approaches that contribute to the advancement of fruit tree cultivation in modern orchards. We welcome original research articles, reviews, and case studies covering a wide range of topics related to fruit tree cultivation. These include, but are not limited to, soil management, plant nutrition, cultivar and rootstock selection and management, propagation methods, planting systems, innovative pruning and training methods, irrigation, fertilization, fertigation, and hydroponic techniques. We encourage original contributions that address the challenges faced by fruit trees under various abiotic stresses such as salinity, drought, waterlogging, heat, cold, frost, and mineral element deficiency or toxicity. Additionally, we welcome studies evaluating protection methods against sun, hail, and frost as well as contributions on postharvest handling, and sustainable orchard practices. We are particularly interested in submissions that explore novel technologies, methodologies, and strategies to optimize fruit production, enhance fruit quality, and ensure long-term sustainability in orchard management.
By participating in this Special Issue, researchers will have the opportunity to showcase their findings and contribute to the knowledge base on fruit tree cultivation. Published articles will reach a wide audience of researchers, academicians, and industry professionals in the field of horticulture and fruit tree production.
