Abstract

When engineered nanoparticles (NPs) reach soil through contaminated biosolids or irrigation water they could affect plant growth. Our results showed that the above- and below-ground growth was stunted in tomato exposed to SnO2-NPs, moreover the NPs enter into the root system. These research contribute to the setting of reference baseline values of tin dioxide in soil-plant system.
