Nano pesticides are the best way to conventional pesticides. Nano pesticides can
provide better penetration and accelerate resistance of microbes through the plant and control
different diseases. Nano formulation of pesticides certainly protects the premature degradation
in the environment and delivers high impact on targeted species. In this communication,
we reported a novel nano-acephate for plant disease control and its subsequent
characterization of encapsulated complex using polypropylene glycol as an encapsulated
agent. Nano-acephate encapsulated particles were characterized by dynamic light scattering
(DLS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and Scanning electron microscopy
(SEM). The bioactivity study was conducted against various fungi and bacteria. The
performance of Nano particles was many fold times effective when compared to the original
parental particles. The bio-assay of Nano acephate shows better results when compared
to the normal commercial acephate. Less environmental contamination and safe handling
are the advantages of nano-pesticides. This method is an eco-friendly formulation and it is
useful to farmers.
Keywords: Bio-assay, encapsulation, nano-acephate, polypropyleneglycol, nano-formulation.
