Kenya has got a rapidly increasing population which was estimated to be 36 million in the year 2009 with a growth rate of 2.7 per annum hence the need for diversified food production. Water deficit is one of the most environmental stresses affecting agriculture productivity. Drought may affect crop yield and gas exchange at any developmental stage while early reproductive stage is found to be one of the most susceptible phases of a crop to drought stress. NERICA (New Rice for Africa) are high…

Rice is an important cereal and staple food crop in Tanzania, the rice production has not met the demand, mainly due to water shortage. Dissemination of New Rice for Africa (NERICA) has been in
Effects of moisture stresses during vegetative and reproductive growth phases on productivity of six selected rain-fed rice varieties in Ifakara , Tanzania
In order to study the critical growth stages and the most tolerant rice varieties in both lowland and upland rainfed ecosystems, an experiment arranged in split plots based on randomized complete
Combined effects of drought and moderately high temperature on the photosynthesis, PS II photochemistry and yield traits in rice (Oryza sativa L.)
Leaf photosynthesis, which determines the yield in rice, is greatly affected by heat and drought stresses during reproductive phenophase. The effect of short term natural high temperatures above 35
Polyethylene Glycol Mediated Osmotic Stress Impacts on Growth and Biochemical Aspects of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
TLDR
All studied traits indicated tolerance potential of these genotypes against moderate and extreme drought stress, which could also give better growth in arid and semi-arid regions of the country that facing water scarcity.
Kaolin and Jasmonic acid improved cotton productivity under water stress conditions
Sodium silicate mediated response of antioxidative defense system in Lycopersicon esculentum mill. under water stress
The present study was designed to study the effect of water stress on Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. and role of sodium silicate in the protection of tomato plants under water deficit condition.
Drought Stress Responses and Its Management in Rice
Comparative Analysis of Expression Profiles of Panicle Development among Tolerant and Sensitive Rice in Response to Drought Stress
TLDR
Investigating grain yield components and gene expression profiles of panicle among tolerant and sensitive rice in response to drought stress provided insight into functional mechanisms regulating drought stress response in panicle development and may also help to crop tolerant improvement.
Improving drought tolerance potential in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) through exogenous silicon supply.

TLDR
Results indicate that N2 has superior physiological traits under water deficit hence may be recommended for growing under rainfed conditions in Kenya.
Field evaluation of selected NERICA rice cultivars in Western Kenya
TLDR
A study conducted in a field located at Alupe farm of Lake Basin Development Authority (LBDA), in Western Kenya for a period of three years (2005 - 2007), showed that NERICA 10 attained physiological maturity most quickly [97 days after seeding (DAS)] followed by NERica 1 (102 DAS).

Use of physiological parameters as fast tools to screen for drought tolerance in sugarcane
TLDR
The results are consistent with the tolerant-susceptible classification of these genotypes and indicate that these tools can be reliable in screening for drought tolerance, with F v/F m, SPAD index and LT having the added advantage of being nondestructive and easily and quickly assessed.
Physiological Responses of Spring Durum Wheat Cultivars to Early-season Drought in a Mediterranean Environment
TLDR
Examination of physiological characters among spring durum wheat cultivars in response to duration of early-season drought found sufficient intraspecific variation in these physiological attributes to suggest their use as selection tools.
Effect of Water Deficit at Vegetative and Reproductive Stages of Hybrid, Open Pollinated Variety and Local Maize ( Zea mays L.)
TLDR
Water deficit at reproductive stage reduced more leaf area, kernel number and grain yield per plant than water deficit at vegetative stage, and leaf water potential and relative water content taken at 58 and 60 days after planting were reduced.

TLDR
Bambara groundnuts appear to reduce water loss under water stress and have the ability to recover from the effects of water stress after rainfall or irrigation.
