Abstract

No plant species or animals are immune to stress. Any species at least once during its life cycle is subjected to stress. Nutrient uptake and utilization as well as water absorption by plants are adversely affected under stressful conditions. Plant growth and metabolism are usually impaired under such conditions, resulting in decreased crop yields.
