Prospects for growing tuberous sunflower in changing climatic conditions: Analysis of the adaptability of tuberous sunflower to different climatic conditions and potential breeding and genetic strategies to adapt this plant to climate change

The special issue of the journal "Crop Breeding, Genetics and Genomics" is dedicated to the perspectives of growing Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus L.) in changing climatic conditions. The articles in this issue analyze the adaptability of this plant to various climatic conditions and discuss potential breeding and genetic strategies aimed at adapting it to climate change. The themes of the articles focus on identifying phenotypic and genetic traits influencing the adaptability of Jerusalem artichoke to different climatic conditions, including tolerance to drought, temperature, and soil pollution. Subsequently, breeding strategies will be presented to improve the adaptability of Jerusalem artichoke to changing climatic conditions, including modern methods of genetic selection and genetic engineering techniques. The special issue will also include an analysis of the economic aspects of growing Jerusalem artichoke in the context of climate change, evaluating commercial and market perspectives and proposing adaptive strategies for producers.

In summary, this issue provides a comprehensive analysis of the perspectives of growing Jerusalem artichoke in the face of climate change, presenting both challenges and opportunities for breeders and researchers.

Submission Deadline: 30 March 2025

Online Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online through Hapres Online Submission System. Please visit Guide for Authors before submitting a manuscript. Authors are encouraged to submit a paper as soon as it is ready and don’t need to wait until the deadline. Submissions will be sent to peer-review in order of arrival. Accepted papers will be published continuously in Crop Breeding, Genetics and Genomics (CBGG) and then gathered together on the special issue webpage. If interested to contribute, please submit a 200–300 words pitch to the Editorial Office indicating a tentative title, authors, and key points of the study for pre-approval.


Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Virtual Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.

All papers belonging to a Virtual Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Virtual Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Virtual Special Issue website.

Submissions to Virtual Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
