  • NANOTECHNOLOGY

    Nanotechnology is the science that largely deals with synthesis and application of Nano size particles (1-100 nm or 1.0x10-9 m) of any material. A nanometre is one billionth of a meter in length, and, depending on the size of the atom, between three and six atoms will fit inside a nanometre (nm). Nanotechnology is an enabling set of technologies that cross all industry sectors and scientific disciplines such as physics, chemistry, and biology. The important point is that the integration of these technologies and their manipulation at nanolevel will over the next decade provide major advances across many existing industries and create whole new industries.

  • USE OF NANOSCIENCE IN NEMATODES MANAGEMENT

    Nanotechnology is science deals with microscopic particles whose size is measured between 0.1 to 100 nanometers (nm). Nanoparticles have potential advantage in the most challenging field of research such as science, technology, agriculture, medicine, and veterinary. The nanoparticles can be synthesized by different methods chemical, physical and biological methods. Nanoparticles can be used potentially in the crop protection especially in the plant parasitic nematode management. Nanoparticles may act upon nematode in a way similar to chemical nematicides or pesticide.

  • Nanotechnology: An innovative tool for seed technology

    Nanotechnology is a novel technology, applicable to almost all fields of sciences. Seed technology is a branch of agriculture that needs major concern. In seed technology, nanomolecules can be used in a different form for seed coating for different purposes such as contamination detection in seed field, seed protection, nano bioprocessing, seed hardening, seed physiology studies, seed moisture detection, release of dormancy etc. However, there are some engineered nanoparticles could exert physical or chemical toxicity on plant depending on their chemical composition, size, surface energy and importantly the species.
