Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Agriculture was a major development in human history, leading to the rise and flourishing of civilization. It plays a critical role in human society, serving as the backbone of the economic system. Modern agriculture provides the raw materials for most of the world’s food and for many industrial products, including textiles. Significant scientific and technological advances over the years have led to great increases in agricultural productivity, as well as a reduction in the environmental impacts. Nevertheless, agricultural systems of the future face huge challenges in balancing and optimizing productivity and profitability against the stewardship of ecosystems and natural resources.

The MDPI journal Agriculture, a peer-reviewed open access international journal of MDPI, announced the first International Online Conference on Agriculture - Advances in Agricultural Science and Technology (IOCAg2022), which will be held online (Sciforum) from February 10 to February 25 in 2022. One of the main goals of this e-conference is to promote research and collaboration in agricultural science and technology.

To celebrate IOCAg2022 and call for the most advanced research in the field, Agriculture will dedicate one Special Issue to the conference, with a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charges (APC). All participants of IOCAg2022 are invited to submit a full paper to this issue. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Crop production
  • Farm Animal Production
  • Genotype Evaluation and Breeding
  • Crop Protection, Diseases, Pest and Weeds
  • Agricultural Soils
  • Agricultural Technology
  • Ecosystem, Environment and Climate Change in Agriculture
  • Agricultural Product Quality and Safety
  • Agricultural Economics, Policies and Rural Management
  • Digital Agriculture
  • Agricultural Systems and Management
  • Agricultural Water Management
