Special Issue "Applied Research and Extension in Agronomic Soil Fertility"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 March 2022.
Interests: soil nutrient cycling; field fertilizer application strategy
Interests: soil fertility; soil nutrient cycling; crop cultivation
Interests: soil fertility; soil nutrient cycling
According to United Nations estimates, the world’s population is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. In order to meet the food demand of this growing world population, more effective agricultural management practices are needed to achieve sustainable agricultural development in order to produce more grain with higher soil fertility and lower environmental costs.
We welcome submissions describing research focused on the production of field crops and physical, chemical, and biological changes in the agricultural soil caused by fertilization, soil improvement, tillage (including no tillage, reduced tillage, and direct drilling), irrigation and drainage, and crop rotations.
Cutting-edge research on the soil carbon sequestration and the establish of health agricultural soil through various field management measures is also of interest, as are submissions of papers related to crop production and the improvement of agricultural soil fertility.

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. Agronomy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2000 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.
