Nanotechnology for crop improvement An enhanced production has been observed by foliar application of nanoparticles as fertilizer. Nanofiltration Nanotechnology has played a very important role in developing a number of low-energy alternatives, among which three are most promising: 1 protein—polymer biomimetic membranes; 2 aligned-carbon nanotube membranes; and 3 thin-film nanocomposite membranes.
Nanofoods The agri-food industries have been investing huge money into nanotechnology research.
