Abstract:Soil salinity is one of the major limiting factors in agriculture that reduce food production. Methods to mitigate salinity stress are limited. In this project, I developed an environmentally friendly method of imparting salinity stress tolerance in plants. I achieved this by applying bacteria isolated from seaweeds to roots of plant. The bacteria modulated the physiology of plant allowing better growth under high salt conditions.
