Abstract:

The present work is focused on synthesis and characterization of Zinc oxide nanoparticles from spinach (Spinacia oleracea) leaves. The prepared Zinc oxide nanoparticles (Zno NPs) were characterized by using UV-Visible spectrophotometer, particle size analyzer and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The average particle diameter was found to be 40.59 nm. In present study, the different concentration (0, 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175 and 200 ppm) of ZnO NPs are used for the treatment in greengram (Vigna radiata) seeds to study the effect on seed germination and observed early seedling growth and growth characteristics of greengram. The best results were found at 125 ppm of Zinc oxide nanoparticle for seed quality parameters over untreated seeds. The experiment was carried out under laboratory conditions. Biological method highlights the necessity for sustainable study on the impacts of nanoparticles on agricultural and environmental sectors.


Keywords: ZnO nanoparticles, Spinacia oleracea, Vigna radiate, Seed Germination.
