Mathematical models are essential tools for promoting optimal and sustainable agriculture production. Erosion and hydrological models have been largely investigated to provide information for land-use and watershed management and support the action at field scale of land managers and agricultural engineers. However, a further effort is needed for obtaining more reliable and long-term information, taking into consideration the combined effects of the hydrological cycle, erosion and sediment transport, and the impact of climate change. A valuable contribution is expected from the most recent development of geospatial technologies, including GIS and remote sensing. Please share your research findings in this Special Issue. Submissions on (but not limited to) the following topics are invited: 1) mathematical models for sustainable agriculture; 2) soil–water mass balance models; 3) advances in erosion and hydrological models; 4) climate change and water resource management, 5) GIS and remote sensing applications for soil and water conservation.

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.
