At present, the development of agricultural areas is only possible by increasing resource use efficiency with the least harm to the environment and humans through the effective use of modern technologies. Nanotechnology is a scientific field with a number of dimensions. It is concerned with particles ranging in size from 1 to 100 nm, and raises hopes for improving agricultural productivity by addressing problems which were conventionally intractable. High reactive surface area and very small packing space requirements have made the use of nanoparticles popular in both agrochemistry and agriculture.
The present Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to present the current state-of-the-art use of nanoparticles to improve agricultural productivity, as well as the role of nanoparticles in agrochemicals (herbicides and pesticides). Agrochemicals are key in the transition between crop productivity and losses. In the present Special Issue, we invite contributions from leading groups in the field, with the aim of giving a balanced view of the current state of the art in this discipline.
As the Guest Editors of this Special Issue of Nanomaterials titled “Advanced Nanotechnology in Agrochemistry and Agriculture”, we invite you to contribute your research articles related to nanotechnology in plants, specifically related to the chemical compositions and changes involved in the production, protection, physiochemical, and molecular physiological levels. Research articles describing ways to improve agricultural productivity are also welcome.
In this Special Issue, both original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Nanoparticles-mediated changes in plants;
- Nanorods and their applications in agriculture;
- Nanoparticles in agrochemistry;
- Abiotic stress and nanoparticles;
- Nanoparticles in herbicides and pesticides;
- Plant physiology and agrochemistry.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
