Dear Colleagues,

Crop science is the study of the world's major food, feed, turf, and fiber crops and their environment. It is a broad discipline encompassing breeding, genetics, production, and management. In order to maintain profitable crop production, the Crop Science research focus area is equipped to study the importance of soil and crop cultivation practices in different environments on the growth, yield and quality of field crops. Both commercial and small-scale producers are provided with best management agronomic or cultivation practices of field crops. Both field research and lab  work are conducted on newly bred or imported cultivars at different planting dates, plant populations and fertility levels for better recommendations to growers. Sensitivity of newly released cultivars to herbicides and the effectiveness of weed control programmes are continuously tested.


Crop scientists contribute to global food security by increasing local and global food production, developing new crop varieties, and protecting plants from disease, environmental stresses, and climate change. Discover alternatives to traditional cropping systems and learn to improve the quality and nutrition of crops that feed the world. Crop scientists help make nutritious, affordable, sustainable food while preserving the environment through crop breeding and best agronomic practices.


Crop Science is the study of agricultural issues and challenges, including resource use consistent with sustainable production of food, feed, fibre and fuel production for the growing population. Crop Science integrates a broad range of disciplines, including genetics, pathology, crop quality and biotechnology, leading to the development of superior varieties of horticulture and field crops. Crop production is an important part of the global economy, as it provides a source of food, fuel, and raw materials for many industries.


For this, it is important to collect the experiences of crop scientists that are working on the production technologies of different crops, e.g.  food, feed, fiber and fuel crops, etc. Research articles and reviews in this area of study are welcome.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
