Description

Engineered Nanomaterials for Sustainable Agricultural Production, Soil Improvement and Stress Management highlights the latest advances in applying this important technology within agriculture sectors for sustainable growth, production and protection. It has been proposed that climate change-driven effects, especially from unpredictable environmental fluctuations, can result in an increased prevalence of abiotic and biotic stresses in crop plants. These stresses have been proven to negatively impact the global yields of some crop plants. To ensure and improve food security, it is, therefore, imperative to develop an improved and sustainable farming technology and also cultivars resistant to all these hazards. This book explores various smart engineered nanomaterials which are now being used as an important tool for improving growth and productivity of crops facing abiotic stresses, improving the health of the soil in which those crops are growing, and addressing stresses once the plant begins to produce food yield. The book includes insights into the use of nanoparticles as bactericides, fungicides and nanofertilizers. Engineered Nanomaterials for Sustainable Agricultural Production, Soil Improvement and Stress Management includes an international representation of authors who have crafted each chapter with clarity, reviewing up-to-date literature with lucid illustrations. The book is an important resource for researchers, nanobiotechnologist, agriculturist, horticulturists as a reference book as well as inspire some companies and specific scientists involved in nanoscience and sustainable agricultural crop plants growth, development, production and protection.
