This Special Issue aims to gather transdisciplinary contributions with innovative research, methodological proposals, and research ideas on sustainable cultivation/production systems.
We focus on unraveling the interactions, and designing cultivation systems, where the crop plant breeding lines are cultivated along with their rhizosphere components. In order to achieve this, we must “learn” from the rhizospheres, which have assisted landraces and crops’ wild relatives in surviving under various stress situations. We use next-generation sequencing combined with high-resolution microscopy and metabolomic approaches, as well as nanointerface studies to expand the potential of modern plant-breeding lines. Sustainable production system issues are critical in regions where the effects of climate change have created severe stress conditions (e.g., the Global South), but also in the Global North where artificial fertilization has resulted in agricultural pollution and crop nutritional stress.
For this Special Issue, we seek the submission of regular research papers, communications, short notes, and reviews with research proposals.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Stresses is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
