Biography:


Crop growth and production is severely affected by various abiotic and biotic factors. Of various abiotic stresses, drought, salinity and temperature stresses are much common. Various strategies are used to enhance crop salt tolerance. These are including screening methods, genetic engineering and shot-gun approaches. In shot-gun approaches application of various compounds like compatible solutes, plant growth regulators and various inorganic fertilizers. My main focus is to study the effect of various shot-gun approaches on crop growth under abiotic stresses especially under drought and salt stress conditions.
