More and more sensors have been used in various aspects of agriculture. Precision and facility agriculture has been the trend in modern agriculture for high-quality products, high productivity, environmental sustainability and low cost. More and more diversified sensors have been used in various stages of agriculture for information acquisition, effective monitoring and decision-making. Various sensors are essential important for science-based approaches to smart and precision agriculture.
This Special Issue is devoted to new activities on sensor development, sensor signal processing, sensor based monitoring, and decision making in various stages of agriculture. The topics in this issue include, but not limited to, sensor design and development for information acquisition in agriculture, sensor signal processing in agriculture, sensor devices and multi-sensor fusion for agriculture, sensors based monitoring and decision making, modelling and analysis of agricultural sensor systems, sensor information processing and software development for agriculture, remote sensing and monitoring for agriculture, and machine vision and image processing in agriculture.

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. Sensors 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 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.
