Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Agricultural watershed pollution has severe impacts on water quality and ecosystems, as well as on human health and agricultural productivity. Exploring the best management practices for this issue is crucial for environmental protection and sustainable agricultural development.

This Special Issue of Agriculture focuses on various management strategies and technologies for agricultural watershed pollution. This includes watershed management, water quality monitoring, chemical fertilizers and antibiotics and pesticide management, livestock management, and non-point pollution source (NPS) control. In addition, it presents the latest research findings and case studies to evaluate and improve best management practices. The Special Issue also shares experiences from different regions and countries and discusses international cooperation and policy development for agricultural watershed pollution issues. Through this, it aims to develop international best practices for agricultural watershed management and provide future directions for sustainable agriculture and environmental protection. Therefore, we invite all researchers, policymakers, and experts who are interested in best management practices for agricultural watershed pollution to join us. Through this Special Issue, we hope to share the latest research and knowledge on agricultural watershed management and explore future directions for sustainable agriculture and environmental protection together. All types of articles, such as research, opinions and reviews are welcome.
