Nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) for the crop plants is of great concerns throughout the world. The burgeoning population of the world needs crop genotypes responding to higher nitrogen and showing a direct relationship to yield with the use of nitrogen inputs i.e. high nitrogen-responsive genotypes. However, for fulfilling the high global demand of organic produce, it requires the development of low nitrogen-responsive genotypes with greater nitrogen use efficiency and grain yields. Nitrogen is the most important inorganic nutrient for plant growth. Its effects have been directed to understand the molecular basis of plant responses to nitrogen and to identify nitrogen-responsive genes in order to manipulate their expression and enable the plant to use nitrogen more efficiently. Nitrogen use efficient crops can be produced by manipulating the genes existing in pathways relating to nitrogen uptake, assimilation, amino acid biosynthesis, C/N storage and metabolism, signaling and regulation of nitrogen metabolism and translocation, remobilization and senescence.

Keywords: Nitrogen Use Efficiency, Nitrogen uptake, C/N storage and metabolism, Remobilization and Translocation
