Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 3rd International Electronic Conference in Agronomy, A Global Perspective on 21st Century Agronomy: Research Opportunities and Challenges Ahead (https://sciforum.net/event/IECAG2023), to be held on 15–30 Oct 2023.

At this conference, we aim to promote and advance the exciting and rapidly changing field of agronomy. We look forward to seeing you at our event, and I am pleased to announce a Special Issue dedicated to this conference. This Special Issue will feature selected articles from the Proceedings volume associated with our event, which will be published on sciforum.net. This platform serves as a dedicated space to host scholarly e-conferences and facilitating dynamic discussion groups. We invite you to contribute your valuable research and insights to this Special Issue, as it provides a unique opportunity to showcase your work on a global platform. We encourage submissions on a wider range of topics, including, but not limited to:

  1. Disease, pest and weed control in sustainable agriculture;
  2. Agro-ecology innovation for re-inventing cropping and grazing systems;
  3. Improving nutrient- and water-use efficiencies;
  4. Digital farming for the evolution of agriculture and agricultural engineering;
  5. Plant breeding, genetics, genomics and biotechnology;
  6. Horticultural and floricultural crops.

We look forward to having fruitful discussions and exchanging ideas during this conference and eagerly await receiving your contribution.
