Project summary

Plant nanotechnology deals with the potential application and the impact of nanomaterials in plants. Due to their ability to improve plant growth and yield, antimicrobial activities etc., incorporation of nanomaterials into agrochemicals (pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, fertilizers, etc.) is also expected to have great potential in nanotechnology-driven smart agriculture. On the other hand, plants, being sessile and closely associated with the two major environmental sinks of nanomaterial accumulation namely water and soil and that they will be exposed to them by the application of agrochemicals containing nanomaterials such as pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, fertilizers etc., plants are at the most risk posed by the environmental presence of these new materials.

International Conference On Plant Nanotechnology
