Agriculture field is very important for the humanity, which supplies humans with all needs from food, fiber, feed for animals and energy. Production of seedlings is of great agricultural practice especially in the horticultural nurseries. Producing vigor and healthy seedlings in horticultural cops like banana and strawberry using biological nanofertilizers (bionanofertilizers) is presented in this mini-review. Due to their distinguished properties, bionanofertilizers have an increase concern in agriculture and in particular during the producing transplants or seedlings. Under using bionanofertilizers, many attributes of studied seedlings were promoted such as the plant antioxidants system, nutritional status, and quality parameters of seedlings. Bionanofertilizers have been shown obvious impacts in many horticultural crops besides many other crops during different growth periods such as copper, selenium, silicon, and zinc. The most distinguished impact of bionanofertilizers may include enhancing production of seedlings or plants under different stresses (biotic and abiotic) by improving plant many attributes like physiological, biochemical and molecular characters. This is a diagrammatic mini-review on the biological nanofertilizers and their potential for horticultural crop.
