Global agriculture currently faces enormous challenges that include land degradation and reduced soil fertility, shrinking of land, low production yield, water accessibility and a dearth of labor due to evacuation of individuals from farming. Although the green revolution revolutionized the agriculture sector by enhancing the yield, it is not considered a sustainable approach. Exorbitant use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides to boost crop yield is not a long term approach for agriculture sustainability in the light of the fact that these chemical fertilizers are considered as double-edged sword. On one hand, they enhance the crop yield but at the same time impart deleterious effect on the soil microflora and thus reduce its fertility. Besides, fertilizers and pesticides cause irreversible damage to soil texture and disrupt the equilibrium in the food chain across ecosystem. Thus, the increased dependence on fabricated agricultural additives during and post green revolution has generated serious issues pertaining to sustainability, environmental impact and health hazards. Nano-biotechnology has emerged as a promising tool to tackle the above problems especially in the agriculture sector. It is also an innovative green technology, which provides a solution to global food security, sustainability and climate change. The book summarizes the impact of nano-biotechnology in modern agriculture and the pivotal role it plays to boost the agribusiness.
