Summary

Agriculture has great economic importance all over the globe. As expansions of world population, frequent demand for food and required basic calories for human consumption increased day by day. Agriculture is the reliable and promising sector to fulfill this requirements but there are a lot of factors that drastically affect agriculture globally. Agricultural production and the dynamic of climate change are internally linked together in many aspects including drought, temperature extremes, salinity, pest outbreaks, waterlogging, toxic metals/metalloids, and nutrient imbalances. Risks in an ever-changing environment are emerging challenges for Agriculture scientists nowadays, as these changes adversely affect plant growth and development, ultimately impacting crop production and exacerbating the global food insecurity challenge. With the world's population growing rapidly, it is imperative to combine knowledge from all areas of sciences with pioneering efforts in agriculture to sustain plant growth and thereby improve crop yields worldwide.


This topic of the special issue will assist the researchers to address issues relating to climate change-based agricultural research and biodiversity loss/effects which can enhance productivity and food security in the future. Furthermore, papers on the aspects of apiculture, as well as crop protection approaches in horticulture, viticulture and forest systems are also welcome.
