Recent Advancements on Coalesced Effects of Nanomaterials on Tomato Plant: A Review

Palak Dawar, Adeeba Khan, Shikha Awasthi, Suranjan De


Nanotechnology unlocks a prominent orbit of unique functions in the fields of agricultural industries and biotechnology. In nanotechnology, nanomaterials such as nanoparticles (NPs), quantum dots (QDs) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) demonstrate exceptional physicochemical properties. The incorporation of nanomaterials into plant systems holds significant promise, with the ability to increase agricultural productivity as well as adaptability to both environmental and biological stressors. This can lead to a more efficient use of resources and reduced environmental impacts. Nanomaterials can serve as “magic remedies,” controlling herbicides, fertilizers, genes, or nano-pesticides that target cell organelles in plants to unleash their payload. Despite the abundance of knowledge on NPs toxicity to plant systems, little research has been undertaken on the methods by which NPs regulate plant growth rate and maturity. Tomatoes are one of the world’s most flavorful and extensively eaten vegetables. The current analysis emphasizes the significant contribution of NPs to cultivated tomato plants. The precise understanding of NPs biochemical mechanisms in tomato plants leads to improved plant growth as well as improvements in overall tomato plant quality. The current investigation also looked at the cumulative impacts of NPs on tomato plant life cycles. It is our hope that this detailed review will spark new proposals, leading to the invention of new NPs that will be extremely efficient at regulating tomato plant growth. These advancements may significantly increase the scope of different NPs in the fields of chemistry, biology, and food production.
