Aims and Scope

Research on abiotic plant stress and climate change

The effects of stress on crop production of agricultural cultivated plants will grow to paramount importance in the 21st century, and the Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science aims to make a contribution to understanding these challenges. In this context, stress refers to extreme conditions under which crops and forages grow.

Specific topics addressed include:

  • Drought, including water-use efficiency
  • Chemical Constraints, such as salinity and acid soils
  • Extreme temperatures as heat, cold and chilling stress limit the cultivation of crops
  • Flooding and oxidative stress
  • Mineral deficiency and toxicity stress and means of restricting them
