Abiotic stress tolerance: Genetics, genomics, and breeding
Abiotic stresses incur severe yield losses in crop production. Several approaches can be used to develop crop cultivars that better tolerate stressful environments. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Crop Journal, this special issue focuses on the topic “Abiotic stress tolerance: Genetics, genomics, and breeding” to address abiotic stresses that affect crop production. The issue features 10 reviews, 16 research articles, and one short communication, contributed by 217 authors from 13 countries. We hope this special issue will advance our understanding of abiotic stress tolerance and development of improved cultivars for sustainable and environment-friendly crop production.
