Because of the steady increase in the negative effects of climate change, higher plants are found to be the most affected as a result of their falling under the effects of many environmental; biotic and abiotic stresses. These stresses cause great threats to growth and productivity of plants. The master signal of these stresses at the level of molecular biology is the overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which cause oxidative stress. As a result, the agricultural sector suffers huge losses, which has the greatest negative impact on global food security [1].
