It looks like some companies expect farmers to all buy custom quantum dots to help their crops get more of the important wavelengths. I wonder how this invention will actually change things.

Depending on how much more yield it results in, it could possibly lead to a rise in greenhouse farming where the building is largely made of the dots. That would increase production costs for at least a 1-time building bill, but the farmers would save not having to buy and spray pesticides and herbicides in a contained environment.
