Abstract

Nano Biotechnology in Agriculture: Using Nanomaterials to Help Plants Grow and Tolerate Stress

Author(s): Susane Williams*

Sustainable agriculture is an important part of the endeavour to meet the growing food demand of the world's population. Nanobiotechnology is a promising method for achieving long-term agricultural sustainability. Some nanoparticles (NPs) having unique physiochemical properties, rather from operating as nano-carriers, inherently boost plant growth and stress tolerance. Nanoparticles' biological role is determined by their physiochemical features, application method (foliar delivery, hydroponics, soil), and concentration used. We examine the effects of various types, characteristics, and concentrations of nanoparticles on plant growth as well as abiotic (salinity, drought, heat, high humidity) factors.
