Special Issue Information
The agriculture community, farmers, and researchers are facing major challenges as our ability to secure food production for future world population is impaired by rapid environmental changes. These extensive changes directly and indirectly endanger crop yield by accelerating excessive fluctuations in weed communities and thus hastening the evolution of herbicide-resistant weed biotypes. Currently, over 500 unique cases of herbicide-resistant weeds have been reported worldwide. These weed populations cause massive yield losses and are hazardous to human health and the environment. Our ability to develop new integrated weed management practices will be one of the most important tools to combat herbicide-resistant weeds. This Special Issue will focus on various aspects of “Herbicide Resistance in Weed Management” following the keywords listed below.

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 2200 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.
