Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
For this Special Issue of ‘Feature Papers in Horticulturae’, high-quality mini-reviews, reviews, and original papers on select topics in the research areas of our Editorial Board members are being sought. The goal of this SI is to highlight, through selected works, frontier research in basic to applied horticulture. Horticultural research at the plant level has been undergoing fundamental changes to improve crop plants due to the emergence of new biochemical and molecular techniques. In addition, integration of new technologies with the desire to develop more sustainable production systems has also spurred production level research. We encourage Editorial Board members of Horticulturae to contribute papers reflecting the latest progress as well as new opportunities in their research field, or to identify and/or invite relevant experts and colleagues to contribute. In addition, contributed manuscripts from those not on the Editorial Board are welcomed.
Prof. Dr. Douglas D. Archbold
