Oxide Zinc, Nanomaterial, Solanum lycopersicum, Dry Weight


This study was conducted in the agricultural nursery / Al-Khalkis from September 2021 to April 2022, the study was carried out with the aim of studying the effect of Nano-zinc oxide on the vegetative characteristics of the Solanum lycopersicum plant X-ray and SEM scanning electron microscope.The average particle size of zinc oxide was 23.42 nm. The results indicate that the treatment of 100 mg.L-1 gave the highest values for plant height, number of leaves, fresh and dry weight of the vegetative complex and chlorophyll content which reached 27.66 cm, 10.66           leaf 1-, 25.1 g, 16.3 g SPAD.
