What is to affect the quality of the obtained raw material and improve the germination of seeds is the use of appropriate protection during the cultivation of mother plants and the use of modern protection or fertilization measures in the form of silver and copper nanoparticles. Fertilizers can be delivered in at least several ways - directly into the soil or on plant leaves. Nano fertilizers are able to triple the efficiency of nutrient use, as well as provide resistance to stress. The germination rate is sensitive to the surrounding environment and it is well known that germination is delayed by abiotic stress including drought, cold temperature, salinity stress and heavy metal toxicity. Many have assessed the effects of nanoparticles on plant germination and growth to promote these agents and their use in agriculture. The results obtained in most cases focus on the potential toxicity of NC to plants, as well as the positive, negative or insignificant effects of their impact. Therefore, it seems advisable to conduct research focusing on a specific plant and its reaction to contact with metal nanocolloids.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
