Phenolic acid analysis in Indian wheat cultivar exposed to drought stress
Megha Singh, Vaishali and Lalit Kumar
Drought stress diminishes growth and development which results in reduced production and yield of crop plants that are economically valuable. It is important to understand the adaptation behaviour of the crop plant against drought-prone environment as well as capabilities that help in the survival of the plant under unfavourable climatic conditions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the wheat germplasm at phytochemical level under imposed drought stress. For this purpose 20 wheat genotypes were treated with different concentration of PEG to imposed drought condition. After the present study it was observed that a progressive induced water stress using PEG-6000 causes significant changes in phenolic acid production in wheat. The genotype HD2733 and K9107 seem to be promising for detection and presence of high number of phenolic acids under drought stress.
