Abstract:

Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is found as one of the potential plant growth regulator which is involved in the development of heme, chlorophyll, bilins, vitamin B and other specialized plant products. ALA has a significant role in stress adaptation in plants through regulating several key physiological processes associated with plant adaptations such as seed germination, reduced Na+ uptake, altered light reactions, improved scavenging of reactive oxygen species, enhanced photosynthetic assimilation and maintenance of nutrients status. ALA also acts as a potential biodegradable herbicide and its herbicidal activity enhances accumulation of different chlorophyll intermediates, such as protochlorophyllide, protoporphyrin IX and Mg-protoporphyrin IX. Therefore, there are immense possibilities to increase crop productivity through application of ALA under different stress conditions.
