An update on role of Salicylic Acid(SA) in abiotic stress tolerance in crop plants: A review

Deepak Koche*, Ruchita Gandhi, Shubham Rathod and Rupali Shirsat

Abiotic stresses have been recognized as the potential threat for agricultural production across the globe. Anthropogenic activities related to industrialization and urbanization also have aggravated the degradation of agricultural system as they are experiencing increasing impact of abiotic stresses. These stresses potentially induce various adverse effects on plants affecting their physiological, biochemical and molecular processes ultimately leading huge loss in crop productivity. Plant hormones are recognized amongst the handiest tools to mitigate the abiotic stress. Salicylic acid (SA) is one of most essential and multifaceted plant hormone that not only play vital role in plant defense but also have active participation in conferring abiotic stress tolerance. The present review deals with the illustrations of studies carried out by different workers on the role of SA in combating various types of abiotic stresses like metal stress, salinity stress, temperature stress and water stress in different crops.
