Special Issue Title

Convergence of Modern Technologies in Climate Smart Agriculture: Alleviation of Biotic and Abiotic Stresses

Submission Deadline



Biotic stresses (diseases, pests, pathogens) and abiotic stresses (drought, salinity, sodicity, and heavy metals) are becoming big hurdles for achieving optimum productivity of crops. To address these issues on sustainable basis need of time is to introduced an innovative approach. Recently, convergence of science and technology in information (artificial intelligence and sensors) and materials (organic and inorganic amendemnts) has become a popular way to mitigate biotic and abiotic stresses in plants. This approach is called climate- smart agriculture (CSA). It can helps to guide actions needed to transform and reorient agricultural systems to effectively support the development and ensure food security in a changing climate. CSA aims to tackle three main objectives: sustainably increasing agricultural productivity and incomes; adapting and building resilience to climate change; and reducing and/or removing greenhouse gas emissions, where possible. This Special Issue will help to cover the knowledge gaps regarding understanding of plant mechanisms involved in remediation of biotic and abiotic stresses. Therefore, we invite researchers to contribute to the Special Issue on"Convergence of Modern Technologies in Climate Smart Agriculture: Alleviation of Biotic and Abiotic Stresses" which is intended to cover broad aspects of modern technologies (artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and sensors) and amendemnts (organic, semi-organic and inorganic) in relation to biotic and abiotic stresses alleviation in crops.
