Engineered Nanomaterials for Agricultural Sustainability PDF Summary

Engineered Nanomaterials for Agricultural Sustainability: Current Status, Methods and Future Strategies addresses the bottleneck between the development and the implementation of nanotechnology created by the knowledge gap between the science, regulation, and impact on both environment and consumer. Engineered nanomaterials have shown great potential for enhancing plant growth and yield, preventing crop loss to pests and abiotic conditions, and for the targeted release of conventional agrochemicals, as well as improving food storage post-harvest. However, concerns over their impact on crop health, environmental and infrastructure costs and human health safety have caused concern about their sustainable application. Engineered Nanomaterials for Agricultural Sustainability: Current Status, Methods and Future Strategies presents the latest insights from studies on the mechanisms and fate of nanomaterials in plants in a structured and organized way that enables the reader to design nanomaterials for specific agricultural applications, avoid undesirable effects on those plants, and to identify the most appropriate path forward toward commercial application. With important insights into the regulatory constraints, this volume will be a go-to reference for those seeking to find strategies for using nanomaterials and nanotechnology to improve agricultural output and food security
