Crop and Product Physiology publishes major discoveries in the production of horticultural and agronomic crops as well as quality of the harvested products. Understanding of crop production and product quality requires research that synthesizes knowledge from different aggregation levels, i.e. from gene, cell, tissue, organ, plant to crop level; up and down scaling between these aggregation levels can boost this understanding. Topics covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
· Physiological regulation of crop production
· Physiological regulation of product quality at harvest and its postharvest behavior
· Effect of environmental factors and cultivation techniques on crop physiology and how this affects crop production and pre- and post-harvest product quality
· Applications of basic research to enhance crop yield and pre- and post-harvest product quality in a sustainable way
Articles may include both studies based on experimentation as well as simulation modeling. Descriptive studies that report responses of growth, yield or quality to agronomical treatments will not be considered, if they do not progress physiological understanding of these responses. Articles on crop storage, transportation and usage, and cropping systems, do not fall within the scope of this section.
Please consider the requirements for experimental studies as listed below
Descriptive studies that report responses of growth, yield or quality to agronomical treatments will not be considered if they do not progress physiological understanding of these responses.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Crop and Product Physiology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Crop and Product Physiology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Crop and Product Physiology will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Plant Science.
