Special Issue Information
Sustainable development is a global priority that, since 2015, has received renewed interest following the publication of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Agriculture must become sustainable (SDG-2), focusing on production systems that respect the environment and help to reduce climate change (SDG-12). In this framework, circular economy and bioeconomy are the ideal tools for transforming conventional–linear agriculture into a more circular one, thus reducing, reusing, and recycling the inputs and outputs from agricultural activity. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect the research that is being conducted on the circular economy in agriculture in order to show the scientific community the new advances in the reduction in negative externalities from agriculture, new forms of sustainable production that reuse part of the plant waste as organic fertilizer, and new technologies and production structures that contribute to the reduction of certain agricultural inputs (water, fertilizer, etc.) or to the reduction of crop waste (debris). Scientific articles reflecting the results of a field study will be accepted, as well as review articles that contribute to the recognition of new research trends regarding circular economy and agriculture.
