Morpho-physiological and biochemical response of plants under drought stress
Satvir Kaur and Prasann Kumar
The growth and development of plants are affected by various forms of biotic and abiotic stress. Drought stress is one of the most important abiotic stress, which unfavourably affected crop development and advancement. These progressions are identified with changed metabolism, may reduce growth and plant death. Due to environmental stress, production gets limited. Consistent with different scholars 90% of the global arable land is affected by drought stress. Total 20% of the global agriculture land under drought stress. Drought also reduces chlorophyll content and pigments which are necessary for photosynthesis. Water stress causes an inclusive variability of plant reactions that is extending since cellular metabolism to variations in development improvement including final yield roots and shoots. Additionally, a conception of the morphological and biochemical response to water stress is fundamental to looking at plant tolerance mechanisms for dehydration conditions. The Drought stress affects the morphological, physiological as well as biochemical response of the plant. This review paper depicts a few viewpoints which are associated with drought Induced which alters the morpho-physiological and biochemical responses of plant.
