Abiotic stresses are primarily responsible for the production vulnerability of cereals (Poaceae). Human societies increasingly demand high-quality food, but drought, salinity and extreme weather events are affecting the productivity of maize, wheat, barley, oats and rice worldwide. Therefore, genomic approaches combined with systems biology could be a fundamental strategy to improve cereals' resilience for future agriculture. This special issue focuses on cereal crops for human food and animal feed. In particular, we would like to give special attention to all strategies to understand, manage and develop crops resistant to abiotic stresses in the field. Therefore, manuscripts (reviews and research) aimed at, but not limited to, identifying genomic markers integrated with the different levels of biological organization (cellular, tissue, organ) capable of interacting with the external environment (e.g., soil microorganisms) and improving resistance to abiotic stresses will be welcomed.

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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2700 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.
