Abstract

Amidst the escalating challenges faced by global agriculture, the imperative for sustainable and innovative strategies to augment bioactive compound production in plants has reached a pivotal juncture. This review navigates the transformative landscape of nanoparticles as potent elicitors, providing insights into their nuanced interactions with plants and the underlying mechanisms driving their elicitation effects. Spanning from hormonal modulation to the generation of reactive oxygen species and the orchestration of defense-related gene expression, nanoparticles manifest a multifaceted approach, promising a substantial enhancement in bioactive compound production. Beyond this, their role in bolstering plants against both abiotic and biotic stresses introduces a crucial layer of sustainability to their application. The integration of nanoparticles with diverse elicitation strategies, including synergistic collaborations with biological agents, unveils promising avenues for maximizing their potential efficacy. Furthermore, the convergence of nanotechnology with genetic engineering propels the exploration of innovative approaches, enabling the customization of plant responses and the optimization of bioactive compound profiles. In tackling the complex challenges of contemporary agriculture, the judicious use of nanoparticles emerges as a promising frontier, offering a sustainable and transformative pathway for enhancing plant bioactive compound production.
