Effects of Spectrum and Light Intensity on Plant Growth Metabolism
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2024 | Viewed by 2319
In this Special Issue, we want to provide a forum to share knowledge about the effect of light spectrum and intensity on the physiology, growth and metabolism of plants in order to improve the sustainability and quality of plant production. We welcome studies that improve plant economic value by using light spectrum and intensity regulation and interacting environmental factors, including temperature, water, nutrients, and others. Studies that imporve the biological and molecular mechanisms of increasing secondary metabolites which are potentially beneficial to human health are also welcome. Review papers and brief report providing opinions on opportunities that can be further untapped through modern biotechnology (e.g., gene editing) are of special interest.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Agronomy 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 2600 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.
