Special Issue Information

Daer Colleague,

Advancements in transgenic and non-transgenic development of crop varieties with enhanced yield and/or increased tolerance to important environmental stresses, such as drought, depend largely on robust and accurate field phenotyping methods. Meaningful measurements of plant and crop phenotypes associated with desired traits in the field requires extensive understanding and application of multiple important parameters, such as site selection, site management, spatial analysis of field variables, experimental design and placement, statistical analysis methods, phenotype selection, data collection methods, plant sampling, remote sensing, spatial data analysis, geographic information systems etc. This special issue will focus on state-of-the-art and breakthrough field phenotyping methods and technologies related to the topics described above.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agronomy is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
