    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    Herbicide-resistant crops were grown on 166.6 million hectares of land worldwide in 2019, accounting for 88% of all genetically modified cropland. Since the development of glyphosate-resistant soybeans, numerous farmers have applied the herbicide regularly on crops including corn, cotton, and rice, and weeds have developed resistance to it. Glyphosate is an inhibitor of the 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase. Farming has become more challenging because of the emergence of weeds that are resistant to acetolactate synthase, synthetic auxins, EPSP synthase, and photosystem II inhibitors.

    To generate herbicide resistance in these GM crops, we have adopted a genetic technique. Patients from five major nations, including the United States of America, China, Europe, Japan, and Korea, are being searched with the World Intellectual Property Organization, and the trend on the herbicide resistance transgenes, including EPSPS, dicamba monooxygenase, aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase, 2,4-D monooxygenase, acetolactate synthase, and acetohydroxyacid symporter, is being studied

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed.
    Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent on email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
    Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
