Abstract The study is aimed to investigate the impact of silver nanoparticles on germination of Pisum sativum pea seeds. The influence of synthesized silver nanoparticles on root length and percentage of germinated seeds was revealed. It was found that nanosilver treatment agents do not affect the germination of pea seeds negatively at low concentrations. Also, the treatment of pea seeds with silver nanoparticles provide a significant positive effect on the root length of pea seeds. Highlights Seeds pre-sowing treatment with nanosilver may significantly promote root growth. Silver nanoparticles do not impair germination of seeds at concentrations < 10–3%. 5 × 10–4% concentration of silver nanoparticles is efficient for pre-sowing treatment.
