Abstract

Mitigating the negative impacts of abiotic stress is an important approach, especially if climate change scenarios are realized. It is important to develop modern applications to deliver adequate and safe food for human consumption, particularly in arid and semi-arid regions that suffer from environmental and economic stressors. The progress made by scientific research in the field of plant tolerance to stress conditions during the last decade is considerable, but it needs to supply technical support for the application. The development strategy is based on combining more than one technique to achieve the integrated management of plants under different abiotic stresses, as will be described in this chapter.
