Biochemical interactions of nanoparticulate materials in the environment
present a fairly complex situation due to a large number of available biochemical
pathways. Insufficient knowledge about the interaction mechanisms involved means
most of the experimental observations gathered are mixed up with ambiguous results.
Taking the example of nanotechnology-enabled agriculture in the future, several
beneficial impacts of green chemistry-based nanoparticulates (NPs) are expected to
improve disease-tolerant crops with better yields. The critical issues involved in
designing a plan of action in this context are briefly introduced in the present chapter
after describing the agricultural bioorganisms and nanoparticulate species entering
industrial plants on a large scale. This chapter aims to excite the imaginations of the
readers by contributing to the future development of nanoagriculture.
