Special Issue in Agronomy: Weed Management & Sustainable Agriculture
Herbicide resistance in weeds poses one of the major risks for sustainability of herbicide use and farming systems. The present Special Issue focuses on herbicide resistance mechanisms and management and includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
- New cases of herbicide resistance (species, modes of action)
- Physiology and ecology of herbicide resistant biotypes
- Dynamics of herbicide resistance in populations in space and time
- Mechanisms and patterns of herbicide resistance
- New tests for detection of resistance
- Surveys, mapping and databasing of herbicide resistance
- Integrated management of herbicide resistance
- Decision support systems and informatics
- New technologies and precision agriculture for prevention and management of resistance
Research papers and reviews on one or more of the above-mentioned issues or any other relevant to herbicide resistance are welcome. The goal of this Special Issue is, not only to present the most advanced research dealing with herbicide resistance, but also to show the most recent trends and approaches.

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 papers will be 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. Agriculture is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1000 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.
