Abstract  This review summarizes the recent progress made towards the development of transgenic plants with improved tolerance to water stress and salinity. Of the various strategies employed, emphasis has been given to the genes engineered for the biosynthesis of osmoprotectants and osmolytes. This review also briefly discusses the importance of the use of specific stress inducible promoters and the future prospects of transgenic plants with improved agronomic traits.
