Exponential growth of the population and industrialization resulted in adverse effect and tremendous change in the climatic patterns and lead to global warming and various other effects. This shift in weather patterns causes various stresses on plants. As plants play a major role in our lives including food, clothing and shelter, fighting these stresses for our survival is must. Abiotic stress factors like drought, high temperature, salinity, water logging and mineral toxicity causes disturbances and differences from germination to reproductive stages and such stress for longer periods are fatal to the plant. Drought, Heat and salinity are major among them as significant cultivated lands fall in arid, semi-arid and coastal regions of the country. Each of these has different effects on plants and their survival. So, extensive studies should be carried out to understand them and further work needs to be done to reduce the yield losses and improvise yields.

Keywords: Abiotic stress, drought, heat stress, salinity, water logging, mineral toxicity
