Agrotechniques in Industrial Crops


"Agrotechniques in Industrial Crops " (ATIC) is an international journal that publishes research on cultivated plants (crops) of industrial value. The papers involve research on crop-oriented and bio-based materials. It should be of interest to international readers, hypothetical, and repeatable. Crops and products of interest include fibers, forest and energy crops, industrial oil seeds, rubber and resins, and planted medicinal and aromatic plants. The following are examples of research suitable for the scope of the journal:

  1. Industrial crop management practices to improve productivity and specific chemical composition. Including cultural practices (seeding, plant density, fertilization, pruning, shading, management of wild forests for sustainable harvest, pest and weed management, harvest, post-harvest, etc.).

  2. Breeding and inheritance of cultivated industrial crops. The research must have international significance and be based on assumptions. The research must be valuable to other breeders, and the germplasm developed must be available to other researchers for further genetic improvement.

  3. The response of industrial crops to abiotic (temperature, water, salinity, pH, heavy metals, etc.) and biotic stresses (insects, diseases, weeds).

  4. Sustainable cropping systems, including an industrial crop, to reduce the negative impact of conventional cropping systems on the environment. For example, planting on marginal land, intercropping, double cropping or continuous cropping, cover crops or other systems designed to minimize soil erosion, eutrophication, greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity loss, etc.

  5. New technologies for in vitro propagation of industrial crops or production of metabolites

  6. The discovery or development of new industrial crops is within the scope, but it must include an assessment of the true potential of plants to become industrial crops, not just information about plants collected in their natural habitat (many plants make products, but they will not become natural products). May include economic analysis as appropriate.

  7. Methods of extracting metabolites from industrial crops and industrial crop processing waste streams.

  8. Crop and forestry biorefinery:

Energy crops: fuel (bioethanol, biogas, syngas), biochar, chemicals, etc. Oils, fatty acids, biofuels (biodiesel, jet fuel, drop-in fuels), and chemicals derived from oilseed crops 9. Bio-based products must be tied to specific crops/plants, and their modification to meet new industrial uses. For instance, for nanoparticles, a direct link is required with an industrial crop or with the respective value-chain.

  1. In the manuscript, all species must include the Latin name and Authority, the first time the species is mentioned in the abstract or text.
