Prof. Dr. Tomo Milošević, at the Faculty of Agronomy in Čačak (Serbia) and Dr. Nebojša Milošević at the Fruit Research Institute in Čačak (Serbia) Headquarters, are the guest editors of a Special Issue, titled “Strategies and Practices of Fertilization Management of Horticultural Crops“, which will be published in the Horticulturae (an Open Access Journal by MDPI) (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/horticulturae/special_issues/fertilization_management).

Message from the Guest Editors: Recently, the agronomic professions and agronomic science have been facing great challenges in horticultural plant fertilization. The new doctrine of fertilizing horticultural crops is based on exact and precise models that contribute to the rational application of organic, organomineral, and mineral fertilizers, as well as soil conditioners such as natural zeolites, to obtain high and regular productivity and fruit quality without any risks to human health or environmental pollution and, of course, a drastic reduction of production costs. Only then can one consciously draw up a nutrient balance for a given horticultural crop according to the principle “as much as necessary, as little as possible.” This Special Issue of Horticulturae will provide new strategies and practices from the most significant research carried out in the field of fertilization of horticultural crops in order to improve their quality and enable their economically justified and sustainable production without presenting risks to human health or environmental pollution.
