Abstract:

Agriculture sector is highly sensitive to climate change due to its heavy dependence on climate and weather. Climate change is ever lasting process as the temperature keeps on increasing day by day. This largely affects our agriculture production in negative way. Due to this, abiotic stresses are comes into play a major role in agriculture. Under abiotic stresses the combined effect of both heat and drought stress on yield of many crops is stronger than the effect of each stress alone. According to estimates, on an average 50 % yield losses in agricultural crops are due to different abiotic stresses. The expected changes in the climate could strongly affect the agriculture production worldwide. Heat and Moisture stresses are the present day hot topics in the world as it throws great challenges before the scientific world by adversely affecting the crop plants and their yield. Hence abiotic stress management through the use of agronomic practices can reduce the negative impact and increase the crop potential to withstand stresses and ultimately increased crop yield.
