AbstractThis chapter focuses on applications of nanotechnology in the field of agriculture. The first part deals with nanoformulations of agrochemicals for applying pesticides and fertilizers to crops. Three types of nanomaterials are considered: organic polymers, inorganic compounds, and hybrid materials (nanocomposites). This is followed by a brief discussion of the potential for developing nanodevices for the genetic manipulation of plants. Finally, the application of nanosensors in crop production for the identification of diseases, residues of agrochemicals, and specific characteristics is discussed.
