Future Crops

Calls for Papers Collections

PLOS ONE is excited to publish a Collection on the theme of Future Crops. Guaranteeing global food and nutritional security over the coming decades is widely recognised as one of the grand challenges facing contemporary science. Overcoming the barriers to enhanced food production requires innovative and interdisciplinary research programmes, spanning plant breeding, biotechnology, biotic and abiotic interactions, and agronomic production systems. From the utilisation of neglected crop species and wild relatives to the engineering of enhanced pest resistance, and from analysis of weed competition to improved modelling approaches for plant breeding, this Collection brings together timely research into the many routes to improved crop production. The diverse selection of articles highlights important developments across the breadth of crop science.
