Abstract: Black rice Oryza sativa is primarily grown in East and North East of India. This variety could not become popular due to low yield and being expensive. It is rich in three kinds of Anthocyanin contents which exhibit great impact on human health. Four different kinds of ZnO nanomaterial were prepared at variable temperature ranging from 250°C to 500°C. The Interaction of black rice grain with nanozinc material leads to the observation that seeds germinated early. Rooting development was higher. Better effects were observed while those interacted with nanomaterial prepared at 350°C. In the present study the aim was to enhance the yield and value addition. To best of our knowledge this is the first scientific attempt [see also patent filed Varma et al. 2019]. The mechanism involved needs further elaborate elucidation. We hope that the goal can also be achieved by interaction of seeds with mycosymbiont—Piriformospora indica (Serendipita indica) a potent cultivable mycorrhiza. The precise objective of this communication is to illustrate the interaction of black rice seed with several synthesized nano zinc material which varied in shape, size and diameter.
