Special Issue "Innovative Crop Model Development and Applications in Agro-Meteorology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 November 2020.

Process-based crop models have traditionally been developed and applied to annual grain crops. They contain soil description, a water balance to simulate drought and flooding, and nutrient balance subroutines to simulate nutrient demand and stress. With all of these normal components affecting plant growth, a natural extension has been the application of these models to other plant systems. These have included forests, bioenergy plant systems, grassland systems, wetland systems, and even vegetable crop production. This Special Issue will be dedicated to summarizing recent applications of crop models to these other plant systems. It will also include papers describing recent improvements in some commonly used crop models as they simulate annual cropping systems.

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. 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 1600 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.
