Emerging trends in agri-nanotechnology: fundamental and applied aspects.

Book cover for Emerging trends in agri-nanotechnology: fundamental and applied aspects.


This book is organized into 18 chapters covering the following subjects: history (Chapter 1); use of nanomaterials in agriculture (Chapter 2); green nanotechnology (Chapter 3); nanonutrients (Chapter 4); enhanced productivity (Chapter 5); synthesis and applications of nanoparticles in agriculture (Chapter 6); toxicity, fate and transport of nanomaterials (Chapters 7, 8 and 9); global market (Chapter 10); nanoproducts (Chapter 11); applications and emergence in agriculture (Chapter 12); effects of nanotechnology in agriculture (Chapter 13); nanosensors (Chapter 14); nanofertilizers (Chapter 15); biosafety and regulatory aspects (Chapter 16); water treatment (Chapter 17); and nanopesticides (Chapter 18). This book provides a thorough analysis of the progressive journey in agriculture from green revolution to nano revolution, with recommendations of certain key points to be addressed in current and future agri-nanotechnology research, on the basis of recognized knowledge gaps. It is hoped that the current volume will serve as a reference book for students, scientists, professors, teachers and researchers who are involved in the study and research on the various aspects of agri-nanotechnology.
