Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
2019 marks the 25th year of the production of genetically modified (GM) crops. With billions of cumulative acres of GM crops planted in this time frame, in over 30 different countries, by nearly 20 million farmers per year, the impacts have been significant. Adoption began in developed countries, but rapidly expanded to numerous developing countries the globe over. As the number of GM crop varieties has increased from the first four varieties of canola, corn, cotton and soybeans, there are now multiple other GM crops, fruits and vegetables being presently produced. GM crops have become a consistent part of crop rotations on farms that range in size from tens of thousands of acres to a few acres. The transition of GM crops in many crop varieties has transformed many aspects of agricultural supply chains. This call for submission to a Special Issue of Agronomy on "GMOs in Cropping Systems" seeks papers related to all aspects of GM crop production. The deadline for submissions is 31 July 2019.
