Special Issue: Climate Resilient Crops
Deadline: Oct 31, 2016
Climate change has far-reaching implications for global food security and has already had substantially impacts agricultural production worldwide. The more frequent and intense precipitation events, elevated temperatures, drought, and other types of damaging weather events that result from changing climate are expected to take a major toll on crop yield and quality. It is therefore of the utmost importance to develop strategies to minimize the impact of changing climate on agriculture. Developing climate-resilient crops that can adapt to rapidly changing climate is critical to ensure global food security and political stability. This special issue will focus on strategies that will enable major food crops to grow under more extreme environmental conditions, explore the effect of climate change on soil matrix and microbial communities in agricultural soils, and the use of soil improvers such as biochar and other organic matters to increase soil moisture content and carbon sequestration, and hence crop production.
