The improvement of crop performance by increasing osmotic potential-adjusting ability is more significant in roots than other plant parts to avert stress. The role of osmotic adjustment in root elongating zone is to maintain turgor pressure to continue root elongation and root growth in drying soils, which enable the plant to maintain its transpiration by exploiting a greater volume of soil or utilize available water in a given soil volume more efficiently. In this chapter the various tolerance mechanism and diversity among the plants to combat is documented with numerous illustrations. In this last section role of plant metabolites for abiotic stress management is detailed out.
