Special Issue Information
Given the ever-growing world population and considering the climate change crisis that is unfolding, we strongly believe that it is timely to discuss challenges and opportunities for the effect of stress conditions on crop yield. As sessile organisms, plants must cope with abiotic stress (soil salinity, drought, and extreme temperatures) and biotic stress (nematode, pathogenic bacteria infection). In addition, the efficiency of water and fertilizer systems also plays a crucial role in improving crop yield. With this Special Issue, we aim to compile the latest knowledge of plant response to biotic and abiotic stresses and to highlight the shortcomings and knowledge gaps of our understanding of the underlying processes. Based on this, we will lay the ground for future research to contribute to this important field of plant science.

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.
