Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The consumption of vegetables has been a growing trend in the sphere of food for years, because they are rich in micronutrients and health-promoting phytochemicals. Vegetarianism and veganism represent possibly the biggest food trends at present, particularly in developed countries. Furthermore, changes in the world's climate, including rising temperatures and water shortages, will bring about major shifts in food production, which will lead to modifications in most of the current food production strategies. In this context, producers of vegetable crops are continually developing new innovative agricultural practices with the aim of achieving more sustainable and efficient production strategies to overcome specific cultivation limitations, to reduce any related environmental impacts, including those related to climate change, and to adjust to new market requirements. For this reason, it is necessary to update our scientific knowledge of vegetable crop production. For this Special Issue, we welcome original research articles on any innovative agricultural practice that targets sustainable and efficient vegetable crop production in the context of the challenges that the world currently faces.
