Nanotechnology in agriculture could improve crop yields through more precise applications of pesticides and fertilisers. This would reduce environmental impact while still maintaining optimal levels for the best results. Furthermore, it also has applications when it comes to food packaging & storage as this technology could ensure that products remain fresh/uncontaminated for longer periods.
Nanotechnology has been used by industry in many different forms (e.g. The ability of electronics to make smaller/more effective components results in greater savings and improved performance levels compared to traditional approaches.
While there are many potential advantages to these new developments, it is important not to overlook their drawbacks. ethical concerns pertaining to use of artificial intelligence & potential safety issues related to nanoparticles etc., all of which need careful consideration before implementation takes place regardless of sector involved.
