Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

One of the main challenges facing scientists, agronomists and farmers and growers is the challenge of food security in the next 50 years. Population growth predictions and changing diets to more and more meat consumption are combining to make greater and greater demands on crop yields. Furthermore, changes in climate arising from the rise of atmospheric CO2 and the consequent alterations in global temperatures leading to changing and unpredictable weather patterns are further complicating production regimes for growers. These challenges require solutions in crop production which do not compromise the production base i.e., the soil resource upon which most crop production is based. There is no doubt that crop yields need to rise and this must be through a combination of genetic solutions coupled with agronomic innovation. This special issue of Agronomy focuses on these issues to bring together a treatise of publications which will help to serve as a foundation for new developments and innovative ideas for future crop production.
