Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
I am pleased to announce the opening of a new Special Issue focused on sustainable soil health management for quality crop production and environmental sustainability. Sustainable soil health management includes the application of inorganic and organic soil amendments, biostimulants, microbial inoculants, and environment-friendly agricultural practices. Besides covering these sustainable management practices, other areas that will be covered include the use of new crops such as medicinal plants, soil contaminants management, soil water management for dried environments, management of biodiversity, and economic assessment. Papers will be selected for this Special Issue subject to a rigorous peer-review procedure with the aim of the rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
Therefore, this Special Issue will publish papers highlighting the significance of agricultural practices, including inputs for sustainable management of soil health, crop productivity, and conservation of the environment. This Special Issue invites papers from researchers and academics of any discipline of agriculture and environment that focus on soil health management for sustainable crop production and environment.
