Scholarcy highlights

  • Nanotechnology opens up a wide array of opportunities in various fields including agriculture. Many of those living in developing countries are faced with daily food shortage as a result of adverse environmental impacts such as global warming, drought, floods, extreme climatic conditions, salinity, and loss of soil fertility
  • Global warming or heat stress, which is often accompanied by drought stress, is a significant factor influencing the sustainable growth and production of crop plants
  • Salinity stress reduces the ability of plants to take up water and nutrients apart from causing nutritional imbalance which inhibits growth and yield
  • This chapter is focused on the modern strategies adopted for mitigation of abiotic stress in plants by using the potential nanomaterials in order to maximize the crop yield
