Agronomy for Sustainable Development

A journal of the French National Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE)

Publishing model:


Agronomy for Sustainable Development is an international journal with the objective to publish literature on the interface with agronomy, cropping and farming system research with ecological, genetic, environmental, economic or social sciences.

  • The journal is committed to publishing high-quality research and reviews that provide novel insights.
  • Publishes original experimental, empirical and theoretical research articles, review articles and meta-analyses leading to enhanced sustainability for agricultural and food systems.
  • Is owned by the French National Institute for Agriculture, Food, and Environment (INRAE), a leading research institute in the field.
  • Ranked the top agronomy journal worldwide by Impact Factor (2022)

This is a transformative journal, you may have access to funding.

  • Call for Papers: Virtual Issue on “Research highlights towards Chemical Pesticide-Free agriculture”

    In this Virtual Issue of Agronomy for Sustainable Development (ASD), we want to explore the latest scientific advances providing insights and solutions to pave the way for an agriculture with much less chemical pesticides and ultimately with none at all. We will include articles on four main scientific domains:

    Bio-inspired management of Crop HealthGenetics and breeding of new cultivars for new servicesCropping system and agrotechnologyAgri-food system transformation, societal adoption, and public policies.

    Submission Deadline: 30 November 2022 | Expected 2023

  • Call for Papers: Virtual Issue on “Climate resilience of agroforestry and mixed farming systems”

    This Virtual Issue will bring together state-of-the-art scientific evidence for the resilience of farming systems. We will include articles on:

    - The conceptual framework of the resilience of agricultural systems, appropriate indicators and evaluation methods
    - Empirical evidence from longterm agroforestry and mixed farming experiments on their resilience against climate change as compared to monocropping and pure livestock systems
    - Modelling the resilience of agricultural systems against climate change: Model development, scenarios, biophysical and bio-economic evaluations.
    Submission Deadline: 31 May 2024 | Expected 2024

  • Call for Papers: Virtual issue on “Farmer-Centric On-Farm Experimentation (OFE): digital tools for a scalable transformative pathway”.

    On-Farm Experimentation (OFE) is a farmer-centric pathway for improvement in agri-food systems. Based on experiments designed with farmers, conducted by them, and for their interests first, OFE not only answers farmers’ own questions but also provides data for researchers to create more broadly valuable insights.

    This Virtual Issue focuses on issues and recent advances relative to OFE with emphasis on enabling digital technologies.
    Submission Deadline: March 1, 2022 | Expected 2022
