Abstract

Assessment of the Ecological Risks of Nano-enabled Pesticides

Author(s): Olivia Smith

Plant protection solutions with nanomaterials that change the functioning or risk profile of active chemicals (nano-enabled pesticides) provide a number of advantages over traditional pesticides. Improved formulation properties, easier application, better insect species targeting, increased efficacy, lower application rates, and improved environmental safety are all possible benefits. Nano-enabled insecticides are starting to make their way into the market after years of research and development. The emergence of this technology presents a number of questions for regulators, such as how does the ecological risk assessment of nano-enabled pesticide products compare to that of conventional plant protection products.
