Summary

To feed over 9 billion people in 2050, we urgently need another agricultural revolution with three basic principles - precise, sustainable and safe for the biosphere. Engineered nanoparticles pierce the plant cell and exert its positive or negative impact depending on their material chemistry. Specifically, designed nanoscale particles are the next generation product to bring environmental sustainability and precision in agriculture. Noticeably nanoscale nutrient provides better nutrition and protection to a plant due to higher surface area compare to their bulk counterpart.
