Abstract:


Nanobionics involves the improvement of plant or plant productivity using nanomaterials. Growth of a plant from a seed encompasses various factors that are directly or indirectly dependent upon the imbibition of micro- and macro-nutrients and vital elements from the soil. Since most of the nutrition is physiologically unavailable to the plants, it leads to mineral deficiencies in the plant and mineral toxicity in the soil. Either way, it is not a favorable situation for the microcosm. The new era of nanotechnology offers a potential solution to the availability of the nutrients to the plants due to its unique chemical and physical properties of nanoparticles. The positive and negative impact of these nanoparticles on seed quality and plant growth varies according to the specific properties of nanoparticles. The present review is an attempt to summarize the impact of nanobionics in agriculture.

Keywords:

Agriculture, nanobionics, seed quality, plant growth, nanotechnology, nanoparticles.
