Nanotechnology, Agriculture, Smart-Dust Technology.


Nanotechnology is a most fascinating area of research now a days. The unique physicochemical properties of nanomaterials, that is, catalytic reactivity, high surface area, size and shape, have the potential to open new paradigms and to introduce new strategies in agriculture. Specific agronomic applications of nanotechnology include enabled delivery systems of release of agrochemicals allowing a controlled release of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, field-sensing systems to monitor the environmental stresses and crop conditions and improvement of plant traits against environmental stress and diseases. In the present review, a brief introduction about the recent nano-innovations in agriculture is introduced. This will paves the way to further investigations in this regard.
