Special Issue "Cannabis sativa: Advances in Biology and Cultivation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 December 2023 | Viewed by 10435
The rapidly growing trend in legalization of Cannabis sativa (cannabis) cultivation and utilization for medical and recreational purposes in regions across the planet has increased the intensity of scientific research in cannabis biology and cultivation technologies. These research activities are essential to the cannabis cultivation industry for efficiently producing cannabis with high yield and consistent quality. This Special issue of Plants provides a platform for researchers to publish their research results on cannabis biology and cultivation and, at the same time, provides easy access for all stakeholders for information exchange. This Special Issue encourages authors to submit well-designed original research papers in all aspects of cannabis biology and cultivation, such as cannabis genetics, breeding, morphogenesis, physiology and biochemistry, tissue culture and propagation, atmosphere and rootzone management, lighting, pathogen and insect pest control, plant training, postharvest, etc. Research regarding cannabis grown in all types of cultivation environments (e.g., outdoors, greenhouse, indoors) is welcome; however, only papers involving drug-type cannabis (including hemp cultivated for medicinal or recreational purposes) will be included in this Issue.
