Agriculture and forestry are two areas where advances in sensors and technologies play an important role. Used individually or integrated into devices and machinery, sensors and technologies allow a more efficient use of resources while facilitating the realization of harsh, and occasionally dangerous tasks by the use of agrochemicals.
Methods and procedures, designed to make operational and profitable devices, allow the processing of relevant information oriented toward the efficiency of agricultural tasks.
The following is a list of the main topics covered by this special issue. The special issue will, however, not be limited to these issues:
- Sensors and technologies based on physical designs, including mechanical tools.
- Sensors for chemical analysis or applications: soil nutrients and properties, herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers.
- Sensors for monitorization: humidity, solar radiation, weeds densities, canopy analysis, soil compaction, energy consumption, diameter of trees, crown height, bark thickness, 3D structures.
- Sensors for quality: fruit identification and ripeness, yield estimation, storage monitoring.
- Sensors for autonomous agricultural vehicles: navigation, localization, crop rows detection, plants alignments, obstacle avoidance, communications, path following.

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 2000 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.
