Nano-Biopesticides Today and Future Perspectives is the first single-volume resource to examine the practical development, implementation and implications of combining the environmentally aware use of biopesticides with the potential power of nanotechnology. While biopesticides have been utilized for years, researchers have only recently begun exploring delivery methods that utilize nanotechnology to increase efficacy while limiting the negative impacts traditionally seen through the use of pest control means. Written by a panel of global experts, the book provides a foundation on nano-biopesticide development paths, plant health and nutrition, formulation and means of delivery.
Researchers in academic and commercial settings will value this foundational reference of insights within the biopesticide realm.
- Provides comprehensive insights, including relevant information on environmental impact and safety, technology development, implementation, and intellectual property
- Discusses the role of nanotechnology and its potential applications as a nanomaterial in crop protection for a cleaner and greener agriculture
- Presents a strategic, comprehensive and forward-looking approach
