The Joint Conference on the First International Symposium on Quality Management of Organic Horticultural Produce (QMOH2015) and the First International Conference on Sustainability of Organic Agriculture (SOA2015), held at Sunee Grand Hotel and Convention Center, Ubon Ratchathani Province, was organized by Ubon Ratchathani Rajabhat University (UBRU), Thailand. The two symposia were scheduled on December 7–9, 2015. These symposia were associated with the great Centennial Anniversary Celebration of Ubon Ratchathani Rajabhat University (UBRU), Thailand. QMOH2015 aims at highlighting the most recent and exciting developments of organic horticulture, quality and safety, food security and environmental stewardship. The scope of the symposium includes a range of topics pertinent to maintaining high quality from farm to table, including: plant genetic resources, germplasm and genetic improvement; production and farm management; soil and biofertilizer management; weed management; pest and disease management, postharvest and supply chain management, and quality standards; and, organic marketing opportunities and international trade. The objective of the symposia was to serve as a platform of knowledge exchange among scientists, researchers, growers, and other development stakeholders from both developed and developing countries, share and discuss issues and recent developments and innovations in quality management for organic horticultural crops to achieve better produce quality and safety using cost-effective and state-of-the-art technologies and renew linkage and/or establish new linkage and international collaboration to better address the challenges and realities in a fast-growing world economy. The Special Issue, “Quality Management of Organic Horticultural Produce" of Horticulturae, includes papers presented at the two symposia, which were peer-reviewed by a scientific committee of international experts. It is an excellent reference material, not only for symposia participants, but also for people in research institutes, academia, growers, and the private sector involved in quality management. It is our modest contribution towards improvement of quality management of organic horticultural produce for increased competitiveness in national, regional, and global markets.
