Effect of carbon nanotubes on tomato seedlings
GonzÃÂ¡lez GarcÃÂa Yolanda
Advances in nanotechnology have provided new materials with various applications, proof of this are the so-called carbon nanomaterials (CNMs) that have been used in various areas including agriculture . These CNMs have the characteristic that they can be easily absorbed by plant cells causing positive impacts on plant growth and development . In addition to its economic relevance, the tomato has been identified as a food of great interest due to its high content of bioactive compounds. This, like all crop plants, are subjected to various types of stress, both biotic and abiotic . Therefore, the application of nanomaterials as biostimulants is interesting as an alternative to increase the yield, quality, productivity and defense of plants.
