Biotechnology over the years has emerged as a promising tool to overcome biotic and abiotic constraints in crop species that lack the required traits for crop improvement through conventional and molecular breeding approaches. New engineering tools are now available not only for single gene traits, but also to engineer multiple genes or plant regulatory machinery for driving the expression of different stressresponsive genes. Here, we discuss the recent progress and current status of transgenic technology in pigeonpea towards developing host plant resistance to various biotic and abiotic stresses and its use in the improvement of this important pulse crop
