Abstract
Applications of nanoscale materials in agriculture are still in infancy compared to medical and industrial sectors. For
promising applications in nanoagriculture, humic acid isolated from agriculture soils capped with zinc oxide
nanoparticle (HA-ZnO NPs) were synthesizedand investigated for wheat (Triticum indicum)seed germination. HAZnO
NPs were confirmed with variety of physicochemical techniques such as X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform
infrared (FTIR), UV-Vis spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).The data confirmed the adsorption
of humic acid on surface of ZnO nanoparticles.The HA-ZnO NPs exposure significantly increased germination by
26.3% root length (28.3mm), shoot length (38.0mm), fresh weight (0.79g) and dry weight (0.5g).This study reveals
that HA-ZnO NPs application as co-fertilizer in suitable concentrations becomes more effective for improvement of
seed germination and seedling growth of wheat plant. The germination response varies with concentration. To the
best of our knowledge, this study first time reports the soil humic acid coated ZnONPs on germination of wheat.

Key words: Zinc oxide nanoparticles, Humic acid, Seed germination, Wheat (Triticum indicum)
