Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

With the availability of innovative agronomic techniques and inputs such as organic fertilizers and biostimulant, there are different research groups around the world that have generated a massive amount of data useful for yield and quality improvement of tomatoes. However, the current challenge is to valorize this knowledge in real farming systems: when properly integrated and deployed, the novel information is expected to make the tomato cultivation more sustainable. In this view, the present Special Issue focuses on the agronomic innovations expected to improve tomato yield and quality in the future. We particularly encourage articles dealing with improved plant materials, innovative fertilizers, biostimulants, digital/precision management and their application in tomato production. 

We look forward to your precious contributions.
