Nanobiotechnology for Plant Protection

Aim & scope

The prediction over nine billion people will populate that is dependable. This will pose critical problems with food, water and power supply, in less evolved countries. Considering that the human stress over natural sources has already reached critical ranges, international businesses which include World Bank and U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) are soliciting scientific studies to identification innovative solutions to support the primary sector. However, the field application of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) has now not been well investigated in the plant promotion and protection in agro-environment yet, and lots of components have the most effective been taken into consideration theoretically or with prototypes, which make it hard to evaluate the utility of ENMs for plant promotion and protection.

Nanobiotechnology for Plant Protection

Nanotechnology is now invading the food enterprise and forming super potential. Nanotechnology applications in food industry involve: encapsulation and delivery of materials in targeted sites, developing the flavor, introducing nano-antimicrobials agents into food, improvement of shelf life, sensing contamination, improved food preservative, monitoring, tracing and logo protection. The list of environmental problems that the world faces may be huge, but a few strategies for fixing them are small.

Scientists throughout the globe are developing nanomaterials that could use a selected nanomaterial for capture poisonous pollutants from water and degrade solid waste into useful products. Market intake of nano-materials is rushing, Freedonia Group predictable request for nanostructures to grow to $100 billion through 2025. Nanotechnology research and development has been growing on a sharp slope across all scientific disciplines and industries. During the last years, researcher published 57,558 articles in agriculture, 161,029 articles in foods 351,547 articles in environment nanotechnology in additions to the future publications which is quite enough to edit new specific book series. The end result has been a quickly growing frame of information in disparate places that is not quite simply and efficiently on hand.

This book series brings this vast body of data together in an organized and usable way in one place. Four specific features that make the proposed book series one of a kind. First, the proposed book series has a very specific editorial focus, and researchers can locate nanotechnology information precisely without looking into various full-text. Second, and more importantly, a series offers a crucial evaluation of the content material along with nanomaterials, technologies, applications, methods and equipment and safety and regulatory aspects in agri-food and environmental sciences. Third, a series offers to the reader a concise precise of the content material, it'll offer nano-scientists with the clarity and deep information. Finally, presenting researchers with insights on new discoveries. Current series gives the researcher a sense of what to do, what you’d need to do, and how to do it proper - by searching at others who have done it.


Primary audience The main readership for the current book series would be researchers in the field of environmental science, food and agriculture science. Some readers may also come from chemists, material scientists, government regulatory agencies, agro and food industry players and academicians. A few readers from industrial personnel would also be interested in it.

Secondary audiences This book series is useful to a wide audience of food, agriculture and environmental sciences research including undergraduate and graduate students; postgraduates etc… In addition, agricultural producers could benefit from the applied knowledge that will be highlighted in the book, which, otherwise, would be buried in different journals. Both of primary and secondary audiences are seeking the up to date knowledge of the nanotechnology application in environmental science, agriculture and food science. It is a trending area, and lots of new studies got published every week. The readers need some good summaries to help them learn the latest key findings, which could be review articles and/or books. This book series will help to put these pockets of knowledge together, and make it more easily accessible globally.
