Nanotechnology in Agroecosystem: Implications on Plant Productivity and its Soil Environment Compared to conventional or other contaminants, nanoparticles pose some new environmental challenges for scientists and environmentalists worldwide. Nanotechnology will leave no field untouched including agriculture by its ground breaking scientific innovations. So far, the use of nanotechnology in agriculture has been mostly theoretical, but it has begun to have a significant effect in the main areas of the food industry. Nanoparticles finding great potential as delivery systems to specific targets in living organisms and is being used in medical sciences. In plants, the same principles can be applied for a broad range of uses, particularly to tackle phytopathological infections, nutrition supplement and as growth adjuvant.
