Your research can change the world
More on impact ›
Frontiers in Horticulture publishes original, high-quality, fundamental and applied research on all horticultural crops, including vegetables, fruits, herbs, tea, flowers and ornamental trees, to benefit growers and consumers. It also welcomes manuscripts on the implementation and evaluation of research solutions in commercial horticulture.
The research should have broad international and interdisciplinary interests, including, but not limited to:
· Genetics and breeding
· Application of “-omics” in horticultural crops
· Precision agronomy and improving resource use efficiency
· Integrated pest and disease management
· Application of the ‘microbiome’ concept to improve plant and soil health
· Role of commercial horticulture in landscape management
· Minimizing waste in horticulture through waste reduction and re-purposing
· Post-harvest processing and management
All studies must contribute insights into horticultural sciences, advancing our understanding on horticultural crops. Research studies with the emphasis on social science, such as dealing with human health benefit associated with consumption of fruit and vegetables, do not fall within the scope of Frontiers in Horticulture.
