Abstract
As climate is changing, agricultural system at global level is facing extraordinary and numerous challenges. To meet the demands of food, of increasing population, use of modern technologies viz., bio and nano technologies is necessary. Nanotechnology is defined as materials, processes and systems which operate at a scale of less than or equal to 100 nano meters (nm). Nano technology has occupied a remarkable place in agriculture and related industries. Nano technology has its applications in different stages of production of agriculture products such as processing, storing packing, transport etc. Using nano technology in sectors like agriculture is economically beneficial. Nano materials are being developed which ensure administration of herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers safely, by controlling the exact time and location of dispersal. To identify the plant pathogens new tools have been introduced into cellular and molecular biology by using Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology has provided solutions to the problems in the food and Agriculture sector by increasing the quality of produce. With the help of nanotechnology increase in the crop production achieved.
