Modern strategies to mitigate abiotic stress in crops.

Impact of abiotic stress on crops. Adverse environmental conditions such as water deficit and sudden temperature changes affect metabolic and physiological processes of crops. These factors can compromise their development, productivity and adaptive capacity in the face of nutritional and light deficits or mechanical damage. All these factors constitute what is known as abiotic stress […]
