As of late fast progressed in comprehension synthesis and engineering nanoparticles without a doubt will proceed with disturbing development of products enveloped with nanomaterials. The green synthesis method has prompted the improvement of biomimetic methodologies for the development of advanced nanomaterials. Biological methods for nanoparticles synthesis utilizing plants separate have been recommended as could reasonably be expected eco-friendly different option for chemical and physical methods. Lantana aculeate has many negative impacts including potential to disrupt succession cycle, displacing native biota resulting in decreased biodiversity and noteworthy issue in agricultural areas. This plant can be used for the nanoparticles synthesis in eco-friendly manner and also due to its rapid propagation. The study reports the production of zinc oxide nanoparticles from L. aculeate, zinc nitrate and assessing it plant growth attribute of Sesamum Indicum. The biogenic Zinc Oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) have promising antifungal activity, germinating at lower concentration and significant contribution to level of yield in crop cultivation when compared to zinc nitrate mediated ZnO NPs and commercial available NPs. Gene expression provides an early warning of stressful effects. The fold change of superoxide dismutase has comparatively high than glutathione reductase and catalase.
