Sugarcane (a complex hybrid of Saccharum spp.) is a major sugar crop in the world and is responsible for approximately 70% of the world’s total sugar supply in the form of sucrose. Sugarcane is mainly cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions. There are several biotic and abiotic stresses that undermine the production potential of sugarcane cultivars. Therefore, continuous development of new and improved cultivars is the key for profitable and sustainable sugarcane production. There are many sugarcane cultivar development programs around the world where scientists conduct research on the science (genetics, molecular biology, agronomy, plant pathology, entomology, etc.) behind the development of high-yielding and insect pest and disease-resistant cultivars. Improved cultivars alone do not solely achieve the goals of profitable and sustainable sugarcane production; research is also conducted to evaluate new agronomic practices such as row spacing, tillage, irrigation, fertilization, planting and harvesting methods, etc. to develop best management practices. Publication of these research results is important for scientific advancement and improved sugarcane production.

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 2000 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.
