Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The promotion of sustainable agriculture, food security and the protection of terrestrial ecosystems are included in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda. In our globalized world, sustainable and climate-smart agriculture is extremely important. Therefore, new ways to increase crop productivity while improving soil health and fertility are constantly being sought.

The aim of this Special Issue is to draw attention to sustainable soil management, modern agricultural and environmental practices that promote sustainable development and agroecosystem health.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: soil health and fertility, the relationship between soil and plants, agroecosystems resilience, climate-smart agriculture, organic farming and agroecology, the method of fertilizer application, reduced use of chemical fertilizer and pesticides, beneficial microorganisms, advanced techniques for real-time monitoring of soil conditions, and many others.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Prof. Dr. Barbara Futa
Guest Editor
