Abstract

Plant growth and productivity is adversely affected by nature’s wrath in the form of various abiotic and biotic stress factors. Plants are frequently exposed to a plethora of stress conditions and various anthropogenic activities have accentuated the existing stress factors. All these stress factors are a menace for plants and prevent them from reaching their full genetic potential and limit crop productivity worldwide (Bray et al., 2000). Hence, these stresses threaten the sustainability of the agricultural industry.
