Enhancing the resilience of sugar canes with photoactive carbon nanodots
By applying carbon nanodots (carbogenic nanoparticles) through the leaf, roots and bud, sugarcane growers may be able to improve crop yield/biomass (increased enzymatic reactions in plants), increase overall production (highly efficient photosynthetic processes) and grow a mechanically strong plant. Such crops and plants will have enhanced fungal disease resistance and be better able to withstand extreme weather. Methods to produce carbon dots from sugarcane biowaste to achieve a cost-effective circle economy are also being investigated.
