Special Issue Information

Ensuring food security for the increasing global population is one of the challenges for the coming decades. As frontiers of crop production, plant biologists and agronomists are the most responsible for the steady improvement of crop production. However, there are several challenges which hinder crop production, including various abiotic stresses (salt, drought, flooding, metal/metalloid toxicity, extreme temperature, etc.) and biotic stresses (weeds, insects, pathogens, etc.). Recently, researchers have been trying to mechanistically understand the basis of stress responses and tolerance in crops. Thus, in this Special Issue we aim to publish research articles and reviews on various aspects of crop responses and tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses, which will also help to serve as a foundation for climate change adaptation in agriculture.
