A novel approach to making crops climate resilient by using extremely small carbon particles known as nano dots and molecules found in plant internal communication systems.


This invention will further demonstrate the use of Carbon Quantum Dots (CQDs) as a way to improve the efficiency of photosynthesis by enhancing the absorption of light by the pigment chlorophyll, which is responsible for capturing light energy in plants.

Signaling molecules enhance a plant's ability to quench reactive oxygen species that wreak havoc when cells are under stress. Signaling molecules like sphingolipids, traumatin also helped halt cell death and boost recovery of affected cells.


This helps plants not only in fighting stress but also aiding recovery from it. Together the formulation of signaling molecules are CODs that help plants mitigate abiotic stress and become climate resilient. This is an example of how cutting-edge technology can truly transform agriculture in India and globally.

Speaking on the development, Dr. Renuka Diwan, CEO, BioPrime AgriSolutions said, “This technology gives us the means to control photosynthesis in a way that was not possible before. Controlling fate of stressed cells gives us the opportunity to reduce crop losses due to climate change.”


“Our vision is to offer relief to farmers worldwide, struggling with crop loss, temperature fluctuations, drought, resilient insects and diseases by developing innovative technologies that will improve the productivity irrespective of farmland size and enhance the quality and nutritional value of food produced, while not only preserving but enhancing the environment,” she added.
