Nanoparticles and Nanopesticides: Next Revolution in Agriculture

Heavy fertilizers and agrochemicals are being used for decades to increase crop yield and for the protection of crops. The continuous use of Nitrogen-based fertilizers has degraded soil fertility, as the nitrates are not absorbed by soil materials, and thus leach into the groundwater, harming the climate and local ecosystem.

Nanoparticles, when applied in seed germination, increase the production through biotransformation of Carbon nanotubes, and the nanoparticles of Zinc oxide and other metals.

The application of nanoparticles is being seen as the next phase of revolution in agriculture and farming.
