Existing crop production systems need to be adapted to a changing climate, technological landscape and are critical to rhw sustainable food security of quality produce. Crop production management typically includes use of monitoring tools, and effective pest, nutrient, and irrigation management, as well as post-harvest management. From this perspective, this Special Issue will encourage publications of scientific, technological and engineering research aspects of crop genetic modeling, high throughput phenomics, precision agriculture, plant physiology, and agronomic practices to realize sustainable crop production systems. Manuscripts that address advancements in the above areas, with field validation emphasis, as well as critical review of technologies/tools that increase scientific knowledge will be considered in this issue. Manuscripts will be subjected to a rigorous peer-review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide information dissemination.

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. Sustainability 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 1700 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.
