The evolution of herbicide resistance in plants is one of the most pressing issues facing managed landscapes today. While the development and widespread distribution of glyphosate-resistant weeds has brought prominence to the issue, resistance to herbicides dates back more than 50 years, and has been reported for nearly every class of herbicides. Fundamentally, managing herbicide resistance requires a reduction in the selection pressure through a diversified and proactive program of weed management, coupled with an intimate understanding of the biology and ecology of species with the potential for developing resistance. Management must take into account cultural, mechanical, and chemical options, all brought together into a long-term, sustainable weed management strategy. This special issue brings together the latest research findings dealing with all aspects of herbicide resistance, including biology, ecology, physiology, and practical management strategies. Effective educational strategies for land managers and policy-makers will also be addressed.

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. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. 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.
