Drought is most important abiotic factor which cause significant loss in crop production, declines the economy of a crop. Decreasing the climate change will leads to increasing the drought, so food production also decreases in agriculture. During seed development drought stress reduces the photosynthetic rate of lead and chlorophyll content. Drought shows the drastic effect on mineral nutrition in plants. It reduces the uptake of nutrients from root to the shoot by reducing the rate of transpiration. The aim of essential nutrients are not only for better plant growth and development, also helps to improve from drought stress. Reducing harmful influences on drought stress can be reached by better nutrient achievement.
