Title : Enhancing Stevioside A production in Stevia rebaudiana through sustainable nanoparticles synthesis via plant extract in hydroponic cultivation


Stevioside A, a natural sweetener found in Stevia rebaudiana, holds substantial potential as a healthier alternative to traditional sugar substitutes. This research findings present herein investigates a novel approach for increasing Stevioside A production in Stevia rebaudiana plants by employing sustainable nanoparticle synthesis mediated by plant extracts within a hydroponic cultivation system. The study begins by elucidating the principles of sustainable nanoparticle synthesis using plant extracts, emphasizing their eco-friendly nature and their potential for application in agriculture. Additionally, it explores the benefits of adopting hydroponic cultivation techniques, including optimized nutrient delivery, reduced water consumption, and enhanced plant growth. The primary goal of this study is to demonstrate the use of green nanotechnology and hydroponics to increase Stevioside A output. The experimental methodology and processes for nanoparticle synthesis and hydroponics implementation are reviewed, followed by a presentation of the study's findings, which show a significant rise in Stevioside A production. Therefore, this study captures the essence of an interdisciplinary approach that uses plant extracts, nanotechnology, and hydroponics to boost Stevioside A production, thereby contributing to the development of sustainable, natural sweeteners with applications in the food and beverage industry and beyond.
