Crop Physiology and Crop Production

A section of Plants (ISSN 2223-7747).

Section Information

The Crop Physiology and Crop Production section of the journal Plants is devoted to publishing papers on all levels of crop physiology and production, which include, but are not limited to, the plant physiological processes (nutrition, photosynthesis, etc.) and external factors (plant–environment interactions, abiotic and biotic stress factors, etc.) that control crop production and grain, fruit, and general product quality. Papers using new methods for investigating phenotypic traits, such as plant growth, development, and composition, as well as responses to the environment, widely known as phenotyping, are welcome. This section also welcomes papers on using models to study crop physiology, production, and yield quality. Finally, agronomic or physiological studies with the aim of helping growers to select or breed genotypes, varieties, clones, etc., are within the scope of this section.

The Crop Physiology and Crop Production section publishes both reviews and original research papers, as well as application notes, computational tools, and resources and methods.

In particular, but not exclusively, this section welcomes high-level manuscripts on the following topics:

  • Abiotic stress factors;
  • Agronomy;
  • Bases for breeding;
  • Biotic stress factors;
  • Climate change;
  • Crop physiology;
  • Crop production/yield;
  • Crop production quality;
  • Leaf/Plant/Crop models;
  • Omics (transcriptomics, epigenomics, degradomics, proteomics, and metabolomics);
  • Phenotyping/High-throughput phenotyping;
  • Plant physiology and plant stress physiology;
  • Plant, soil, and environment interactions;
  • Primary and secondary metabolism.
