Author(s):

Ashutosh Singh, Susheel Kumar Singh and Ashutosh Srivastava

Abstract:
Wheat is the major food source of approximately half of the world population. We have seen enormous growth in population and stagnancy in wheat production in the past decade. Salinity is causing big stress to the plants and hampers healthy growth thus reducing the production. High salt concentration present in the soil causes injury to the internal organs of the plant and affecting its physiology. The present review discusses the role, mechanism, method of producing improved cultivars through molecular breeding and transgenics.
