Nanotechnology in Agriculture

NPTEL and Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur via YouTube


COURSE OUTLINE : Modern agriculture is a chemical intensive process starting from fertilizer, pesticide to food preservation. Modern nanotechnology tools if used judiciously in future, have the ability to offer sustainable development along with the optimal, precision and more effective use of chemicals. In this course, I will be sharing my journey from basic agriculture to modern day nanoparticle based agriculture practices.

  • Profile image for Anamika
    Nanotechnology can increase agricultural production, and its applications include: (1) nanoformulations of agrochemicals for applying pesticides and fertilizers for crop improvement; (2) the application of nanosensors in crop protection for the identification of diseases and residues of agrochemicals; (3) nanodevices . Its amazing course
    The course is very interesting and the lectures is good easy understand the lecturer. Nanotechnology is good to all aspects of agriculture particularly in the farming activities.
  • Udaysinh Bhagvanbhai Jadav
    best course and good Information providing like how to improve agriculture use of nanotechnology .

    thank you for developing this course very helpful.
  • Anuj Ghosh
    It was a great session and i have learnt a lot from here. Thankyou sir for this wonderful session it will help me a lot in my future
    Nano materials are very very important in agriculture. Very very informative. The concepts are good for synthesis of nano materials.
