About the topic:
Climate change increases plant stress, resulting in new insect pests and diseases, emphasizing the need for farmers and researchers to maintain plant diversity. As a result of climate change, plant breeders must create new cultivars with higher yields and quality while minimizing resource use. By combining cultivated and wild genetic resources and using modern plant breeding tools, vegetable breeding will address theoretical and practical developments.
Experts are invited to submit original research and review articles in Special Issue" Vegetable Breeding and Genetics". Please check the OBM-Genetics guidelines for submission, publication, and review before submitting an article to the Special Issue.
