Cereal crops keep key importance in global food security as these are key components of food and feed. Nutrients (both macro and micro) play a crucial role in cereal production and nutrient management is crucial for sustainable cereal production. The special issue on "Integrated Nutrient Management in Cereal Crops" aims to explore the various aspects of nutrient management for enhancing cereal crop production. This special issue targets research and review articles addressing innovative and novel approaches and strategies for managing nutrients effectively, with a focus on cereal crops.

Key theme areas of the special issue will include nutrient dynamics in cereals including their interaction with the environment, innovative nutrient delivery approaches like precision agriculture, slow-release fertilizers and nanotechnology etc., organic and biological nutrient management, and nutrient management for climate-resilient cereal production. This special issue welcomes the articles discussing policy frameworks and socio-economic factors influencing nutrient management practices in cereal crop production.

Overall, this special issue is a contribution to the current state of knowledge in integrated nutrient management for cereal crops, which can guide researchers, policymakers, and practitioners toward more sustainable, productive and climate-resilient cereal production systems.
