A group of innovators in agricultural technology developed a nanotechnology proposal that will enable agricultural producers to use fewer agrochemicals without compromising on the food security of their crops, as well as reduce environmental damage, stated the Government Secretariat of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation.

A group of innovators in agricultural technology developed a nanotechnology proposal that will enable agricultural producers to use fewer agrochemicals without compromising on the food security of their crops, as well as reduce environmental damage, stated the Government Secretariat of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation.

The project, which is based in the Miguelete campus of the National University of San Mart­n (Unsam) and managed by Nantica Agro, involves the use of nanotechnology for applying herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and fertilizers, through the use of capsules that have similar membranes to plants.

Through this method, doses of agrochemicals can be more effectively controlled, decreasing the amount of product normally absorbed or contaminating the soil.
