The current study emphasizes the process of synthesis of nanoparticles from the natural residue that is rapid and eco-friendly. So we present a simple and eco-friendly biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles using Ficus benghalensis fruit extract as reducing agent, rapid reduction of silver ions is observed leading to the formation of silver nanoparticles in solution. The synthesized nanoparticles are characterized using UV-visible spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The silver nanoparticles exhibit significantly maximum zones of inhibition against human pathogens and it also enhance the seed germination growth of Pisum sativum, Cicer arietinum, and Vigna radiate.
