Salt stress is one of most dramatic abiotic stresses, reduces crop yield significantly. Application of hormones proved effective salt stress ameliorating approach. 24-Epibrassinolide (EBL), an active by-product from brassinolide biosynthesis shows significant salt stress tolerance in plants. EBL application improves plant growth and development under salt stress by playing as signalling compound in different metabolic and physiological processes. This article compiles all identified ways by which EBL improves plant growth and enhances crop yield. Furthermore, EBL enhances photosynthetic rate, reduces ROS production and plays important role in ionic homeostasis. Furthermore EBL-induced salt stress tolerance suggest that complex transcriptional and translational reprogramming occurs in response to EBL and salt stress therefore transcriptional and translational changes in response to EBL application are also discussed in this article.
