Nanoparticles and plant growth dynamics: a review

Qazi Mohammed Tayyab, Munawar Hussain Almas, Ghulam Jilani, Abdul Razzaq

Abstract


In recent years use of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) products have substantially increased because of their inimitable properties. They are considered as powerful tools in nanotechnology and are being exploited for their potential use in modern industries. They have versatile application in a variety of industries from automobile to agro-chemicals. On the other hand they have shown to exert physical and physiological changes in the plants. Here we reviewed plant uptake, accumulation, phytotoxicity of nanoparticles and modern fertilizer and insecticide formulations with blends of nanoparticles. In this context we have critically analyzed dynamics of plant growth and their interaction with different nanoparticles.
