Food safety has become a hot issue concerned by governments, people and society. Biosensors have been playing a greater vital role in monitoring agro-products and their production process to ensure end-foods’ quality and safety, and they usually demonstrate a lot of benefits, such as being sensitive, rapid, portable, cheap and especially suitable for on-site testing. So, this topic will concern the development of biosensors and analytical methods, especially for chemicals, microorganisms, biotoxins in agriculture, environment and food samples. It is suggested that biosensors should be in line with the trend of five “S”, Sensitivity, Specificity (Selection), Speed, Simultaneously, Small (Smart), and that all detection methods should be validated using agriculture, environment or food samples. Interdisciplinary research and integrative application research related to biosensors are also encouraged, including review articles and research articles.
