Wheat is a self pollinated cereal crop, belongs to genus Triticum and species aestivum. It is one of the most important staple food crop which is cultivated as winter and spring crop in the world. High temperature affects the growth of plant and development during sensitive stages like flowering and grain filling stage which results in the reduction of economic yield of crop. During germination heat stress reduces the seedling growth, cell turgidity and plant water use efficiency. Therefore, heat stress adversely affects the crop yield.
