Nano science has wholly chip in to foremost accomplishments in different sectors of agriculture. Insecticides are functional for prevention and control of plant disease. Excessive application of insecticides leads to the unfavourable pesticide consequences on human and plant health and damage environment. In this current study the author reported a facile synthesis of new Nano ?- Cyhalothrin using polycapralactone as an encapsulated agent for insect infection control and its successive characterization of encapsulated complex. Nano ?-Cyhalothrin encapsulated particles were characterized by dynamic light scattering (DLS), Ultraviolet spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The size distribution was noted at 40 nm-50 nm. The bioactivity study was conducted against various aspergillusbacillus. Nano ?-Cyhalothrin showed a better bio-efficacy in comparison with commercial pesticide. The valuable information stated by author leads to potential application of polymeric nanomaterials in protecting plant health with huge potential.
