About The Project:
Successful colonization of Moon and planets and even interstellar travel will critically depend on our success in farming under extra-terrestrial conditions. Supply of essential micro-nutrients to crops in the form of fertilizers has been a major revolution in agriculture on Earth, boosting the yield of crops and ensuring availability of food for all. The use of aqueous fluids containing dispersions of nano-sized particles (usually oxides of Zn, Ti, Ag etc.) has been making major strides in enhancing the rate of germination of grains such as wheat, and the yield of crops.
