Researchers from South Africa reviewed the usage of nanotechnology and
proteomic tools in boosting crop growth and development. Their role in the
genetic engineering of crops to achieve agricultural sustainability was also

Nanoparticles have distinct physical and chemical properties that allow them
to have many applications in different fields. However, it has limited usage
in agriculture due to safety concerns. Because of this, the potential of
nanoparticles is not heavily explored.

Researchers from different institutions in South Africa reviewed the effects
of using nanoparticles and proteomic tools in agriculture. Their findings
showed that nanoparticles significantly affect the plants' growth and
development, which boosts their tolerance to drought and salinity stress.
When nanotechnology was used in genetic engineering of crops, it boosted the
expression of specific genes and traits.
