Review on Agricultural Potentials of Nanotechnology

Authors(2) :-Khodade H. H., Jiwatode V. R.

Nanotechnology proved as a new hope of ray for almost every aspect of lifestyle of human being. Properties of nanomaterials are diverse in nature and significant for their functions. Advancement of nanotechnology is applicable for food, medicine, computer sectors. The remarkable properties of nanomaterials have enabled them to be used in agricultural sector too. To increase productivity at the same time disease management is important zone to be considered. In a given review paper it is considered regarding the crop management, crop protection pest control and utilization of nanotechnology based resources to achieve maximum production in an agricultural point of view.
