    Review on Effects, Mechanisms and Managements of Plants Water Stress
    Author(s): Kebede Nanesa Tufa*

    Water stress is a severe environmental constraint to plant productivity. Water stress induced loss in crop yield probably exceeds losses from all other causes, since both the severity and duration of the stress are critical. This Seminar describes the effects of water stress on the growth, phenology, water and nutrient relations, photosynthesis, assimilate partitioning, and respiration in plants, and the mechanism of Water stress resistance in plants on a morphological, physiological and molecular basis. Water stress reduces leaf size, stem extension and root proliferation, disturbs plant water relations and reduces water-use efficiency. Plants display a variety of physiological and biochemical responses at cellular and whole-organism levels towards prevailing drought stress, thus making it a complex phenomenon. CO2 assimilation by leaves is reduced main.. Read More»
