Plant Stress Mitigators: Types, Techniques and Functions presents a detailed contextual discussion of various stressors on plant health and yield, with accompanying insights into options for limiting impacts using chemical elicitors, bio-stimulants, breeding techniques and agronomical techniques such as seed priming, cold plasma treatment, and nanotechnology, amongst others. The book explores the various action mechanisms for enhancing plant growth and stress tolerance capacity, including nutrient solubilizing and mobilizing, biocontrol activity against plant pathogens, phytohormone production, soil conditioners, and many more unrevealed mechanisms. This book combines research, methods, opinion, perspectives and reviews, dissecting the stress alleviation action of different plant stress mitigators on crops grown under optimal and sub-optimal growing conditions (abiotic and biotic stresses).

Key Features

  • Explores the various action mechanisms of mitigators
  • Highlights the relationship between mitigator and nutrient efficiency, product quality and microbial population
  • Includes both biotic and abiotic stressors and their mitigation options


Researchers, educators and advanced level students in agriculture and plant science

    New directions to fight climate change

    I met Dr. Adnan first time in an International Horticulture Conference in University of Punjab Lahore Pakistan and listened to him carefully. A light sparked in my brain, you know why? I was thinking on the lines to how to fight climat change impacts on food security and his work was exactly matching to my thoughts. We both were in other conference "Smart Plantation and climate chsnge". Now he wrote book and that will contribute in this field. Excellent effort👍
