Nanomaterials in agriculture from nanofertilizers to nanoinsecticides

This collection of articles will showcase the latest research on nanofertilizers and nanopesticides studied for application in agriculture in order to reduce the quantity of nutrients and pesticides applied every day to plants in the field. In the light of climate change and the need to feed an increasing population to solve the agricultural crisis the nanoformulations are one of the best options. We welcome original research articles, reviews, and perspectives on these topics from the participants working in this field. All submissions will undergo a rigorous peer-review process to ensure the quality and relevance of the articles in this special collection.


Climate change, sustainable agricolture, Excessive Nutrients leaching into soil, nanofertilizers, nanopesticides, gemnomics, transciptomics, proteomics, metabolomics.
