Improving Tolerance of crop plants to abiotic stresses for efficient crop production and sustaining the environment
Ma, B.L. 2016. Improving Tolerance of crop plants to abiotic stresses for efficient crop production and sustaining the environment. Invited oral presentation at the International Academic Exchange Center, Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, China. March 22 as part of the AAFC Genetics and Genomics Mission to China led by Dr. Denis Petitclerc, Director General, Ontario and Quebec Region. March 21-31, 2016.
Abiotic stress refers to adverse environmental conditions that threaten plant growth and development, leading to reduced yields of field crops. It is one of the major threats to agriculture. The author has given a thorough review on the types of abiotic stresses, how crop plants react to these stress factors, and agronomic measures to mitigate abiotic stresses.
