Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The rapid increase in the world’s population brings with it the necessity for food production intensification. Suitable soil and water management plays a crucial role in the success of sustainable agricultural production. Excess water in agro-areas escalates the risk of erosion and nutrient runoff with subsequent negative effects on crop yields. Therefore, development practices that can control water motion and soil aggregate stability is required for water retention, nutrient fixation, and generally maintaining a healthy soil system. These practices can also assist with the adaptation of agronomy to the impacts of climate change by avoiding huge oscillations between seasons of water abundance and drought.

As guest editors of this Special Issue of Agriculture, we would like to invite researchers and scientists to publish papers on advances in the various tools used for soil and water management in sustainable agriculture.
