As we all know, climate change is becoming more and more evident with each day that passes. The effect of climate change on agriculture is observed in variations of temperatures and rainfall that affect the proliferation and spread of invasive weeds (among other species), but also in the effectiveness of herbicides in those conditions.
These two aspects, together with the fact of emergence of herbicide resistance in weeds and the strict international policies related with herbicide use, mean that agriculture is increasingly facing more problems and difficulties in obtaining a good harvest.
We cannot forget that Agriculture is a primary economic sector. In recent years, agricultural practices have become more respectful and appropriate to avoid resistant weeds. However, the emergence of cross- and multiple-resistance in weed species mean that the known molecules are insufficient to kill them, therefore leading to additional problems.
This Special Issue will focus on “Cross- and Multiple-Resistant Weeds to Herbicides". We welcome new research, reviews, and opinion articles covering all related topics, including new herbicide formulation studies, new active ingredients as herbicides, new cross-multiple resistant weed populations, resistant mechanisms, effectiveness enhancers, genetics and crop improvement, management solutions, nonchemical and chemical control alternatives, field case studies, and political positions regarding the use of herbicides.

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 1800 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.
