Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Crop growth monitoring is an important phenomenon for agriculture classification, yield estimation, agriculture field management, productivity improvement, irrigation, fertilizer management, sustainable agricultural development, food security and understanding of how environment and climate change affect crops, especially in large areas, which have diverse agricultural production. It is also important to understand how climate and local factors affect crop growth. The increasing spatial and temporal resolution of globally available satellites such as Landsat and Sentinel-2 provides us with a unique opportunity to monitor crops systematically by vegetation index time-series. This type of analysis work has great potential to provide valuable support for monitoring crop phenology and providing precise management strategies. The dates of active tillering, jointing and maturity detected from NDVI could be useful in supporting crop modeling, extension irrigation, fertilization management, harvest determination and enhancing food security. The satellite-data-generated NDVI-based work has great potential to provide valuable support for assessing crop growth status and the above-mentioned objectives with sustainable agriculture development.

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. Remote Sensing 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 2400 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.
