A review on antioxidant activity mechanisms for tolerance to water-deficit stress in wheat inoculated with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

Abstract: The present review emphasized on the demand is much higher than the availability for wheat which is projected to continue to grow over the coming decades, particularly in the developing world to feed an increasing population and with wheat being a preferred food, continuing to account for a substantial share of human energy needs in 2050. Biofertilizers are applied in the agricultural field as a replacement to our conventional and synthetic fertilizers. Bio-fertilizers are one of the best modern tools for agriculture that is used as sources to improve plant nutrients in sustainable agriculture. Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (AM) fungi provide a variety of benefits to their hosts, including increased nutrients uptake under low input condition. Water uptake may be improved by mycorrhizal association, making more resistant to drought condition that ultimately causes to increase quality of wheat. In order to study in this review antioxidant status of wheat to bio-inoculants application under water limitation condition, Treatments included water limitation, but activity of catalase (CAT), peroxidase (POD) and proline content were increased. Similar results were observed in CAT and POD activities due to bio fertilizers and AM fungi application. Besides the water limitation effects, generally, it was concluded that the application of bio fertilizers can be a proper tool for increasing wheat yield under water limitation. Antioxidants status like hydrogen peroxide, catalase, peroxidase, total soluble sugar, proline content, total soluble protein and peroxidase activity showed increasing trends with drought condition or deficit moisture levels whereas. The similar response was observed with bio-inoculants having AM fungi with recommended dose of fertilizers.
