Conclusion and Future Perspective

Plant cultivation and consumption are important for human survival. However, water and soil resources around the world are increasingly contaminated by xenobiotic compounds. For example, in many parts of the world, soil is becoming increasingly arid as a result of many factors, such as wild irrigation and misuse of fertilizers. Consequently, hunger is a significant global problem. Every year, 15 million children die of hunger. It may be possible to solve, or at least alleviate, this problem by using soil and water resources more effectively. Unless plants are able to obtain sufficient nutrients and water from their growth media, they cannot survive. In general, environmental stresses negatively affect plant growth. Consequently, understanding the interaction between plant nutrients and stressors is critical. Currently, there is ample knowledge about the interactions between stressors and mineral nutrients; however, information about the underlying molecular mechanisms and genetic basis of these interactions is lacking. Thus, future studies should focus on these aspects.
