Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Recent years have seen rapid advancements in the use of remote sensing data for agricultural applications. This progress has been achieved because of engineering advances in satellite sensors and the development of open data policies from satellite data providers. Concurrently, advances in data processing have yielded significant advances in modeling and mapping approaches, leading to more robust algorithms. All of these advances have encouraged different sectors from government agencies and policy makers to private industry to include remote sensing data in their agricultural decision support systems.
This Special Issue solicits papers that document recent advances in remote sensing applications in agriculture, including crop type mapping, crop water stress and crop disease monitoring, crop yield prediction, crop biophysical parameter estimation, cover crop mapping, and crop residue monitoring using remote sensing data. Research papers that use advanced remote sensing techniques such as multiresolution data fusion, SAR and optical data integration, SAR polarimetry, and SAR interferometry are welcome. We also encourage manuscripts that focus on advanced modeling approaches such as new methods in machine learning/artificial intelligence or their integration with physical models.

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. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
