Wheat is the staple food in the Nepalese diet, and it is grown in most part of the country during the winter
seasons. This brief analysis article discusses previous research and studies on the effect of abiotic stress on wheat. Different abiotic stresses induce a number of changes in plant metabolism, and several of these changes in plant in response to different abiotic stresses overlap. stress –induced metabolic changes cause crop growth to be impaired, resulting in low yield. Abiotic stresses are also an important factor that affects yield reduction, productivity decline, and net profit shrinkage according to long term research conducted by various researchers in various location .As a result abiotic stress such as drought, salinity, acidity, water logging and heat most be effectively addressed through management practices such as tillage and planting choices, residue management, sowing time, stress resistance cultivars, irrigation scheduling and integrated nutrient management to preserve natural resources while minimizing the negative effects and ensuring long term wheat output.
