Nanotechnology in Agriculture

Agriculture provides food for humans directly and indirectly. As world population is increasing, it is necessary to use the new technologies such as nanotechnologies in agricultural sciences. Nanotechnology has been defined as identifying materials, systems and processes which operate at a scale of 100 nm or less. Nanotechnology deals with controlling, building, and modifying materials and devices on the scale of atoms and molecules. Especially in agriculture, technical innovation deals with addressing global challenges such as climate change and the limited convenience of important plant nutrients such as phosphorus and potassium.
