Chile has a wide range of climates, that have allowed cropping several domesticated species under specific agroecosystems. The Chilean Southern region is considered a temperate climate, with specific edaphoclimatic conditions, where winters are rainy and cold, summers mild and dry, and soils are of volcanic origin. These conditions have proven to be ideal for high grain yields of temperate crops, such as wheat, oat, and canola. However, Global Warming, defined as a long-term heating of Earth's climate system, has created new challenges and opportunities for southern agroecosystems. Although several studies are focused on maintaining yields of current temperate crops, researchers are also introducing several fruit species as an effort to diversify southern agriculture. In addition, new techniques and strategies are starting to be implemented to achieve sustainability, where a conventional agriculture starts to focus on high efficiency, increasing biodiversity, minimum chemical use, biocontrol, etc.  

Our new Special Issue in “Biodiversity and crop management: keys for a productive and sustainable agriculture in temperate climatic conditions” aims to widen our understanding of biodiversity, strategies to achieve sustainable agricultural systems, adaptation of traditional and new crops, and minimum chemical use.
