Despite climate change scenarios, new research on improving yield and quality in agricultural production is extremely important. The use of nanomaterials and plant-growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) has been of interest to researchers in recent years. In the future, the creation of new nano-biotechnological products by using nanomaterials together with bacteria will be more advantageous than conventional methods. Thus, the number of fertilizers applied on farmland will be reduced and maximum efficiency will be achieved with minimum input. The number of chemical inputs applied to agricultural areas will be reduced and effective protection against various plant stress factors will be provided. By producing Nano-bio-active. It is expected to increase mineral availability in farmland according to chemical formulations. The results obtained are certain to provide an effective benefit to the agricultural area and nature. Also, nano-biotechnological methods with new research potential are important for serving scientific researchers.
