Research profile

The main focus of this team is to develop next generation eco-friendly and low-cost nano-formulation(s) and carry out the fundamental as well as applied research on nanotechnology-based sustainable agricultural envisaging improved plant productivity and enhanced plant protection.

  • Development and scaling-up of nano-formulation for fertilizer, disinfectants, seed coating etc. applications.
  • Sustained and controlled delivery of nano-fertilizers to plant
  • Application of OMICS, molecular and biochemical approaches to plant-nanomaterial interactions.
  • Plant growth, crop yield & quality monitoring and life cycle assessment
