Impact of Bulk and Nanosized Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) on Wheat Seed Germination and Seedling Growth

The impacts of different concentrations of bulk and nanosized TiO2 on seed germination and seedling growth of wheat were studied in a randomized completely design with four replications in the College of Agriculture, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran, in 2011

Scholarcy highlights

  • The impacts of different concentrations of bulk and nanosized TiO2 on seed germination and seedling growth of wheat were studied in a randomized completely design with four replications in the College of Agriculture, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran, in 2011
  • Results indicated that among the wheat germination indices, only mean germination time was affected by treatments
  • Employing nanosized TiO2 in suitable concentration could promote the seed germination of wheat in comparison to bulk TiO2 but in high concentrations had inhibitory or any effect on wheat
