Special Issue Information
According to FAO estimates, globally, saline and sodic soils cover 397 million and 434 million hectares, respectively. Furthermore, more than 1000 million hectares of agricultural land are facing increasing constraints induced by salt stress, a problem that is being aggravated by the impact of global climate change. Since salt stress affects plant germination, growth, and productivity, it is considered a serious threat to agriculture. The extent to which a plant is affected by salinity mainly depends on the species, but other factors including soil attributes, water, and climatic conditions also affect a plant’s ability to tolerate salinity stress.
In this Special Issue of Plants, we welcome research articles that document exciting discoveries on the induced or natural variation of plant genotypes to cope with salt stress. Novel approaches covering molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, genetics, cell biology, genetic transformation, modern omics, genome editing, and bioinformatics technologies are also invited. In particular, this Special Issue is also open to research articles on the impact of essential nutrients and biostimulants on the biochemical, physiological, and molecular mechanisms of plants to deal with salt stress, and on the effects of salinity on plant nutrient status. Critical reviews on these topics are also welcome in this Special Issue.

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 2400 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.
