The book “Nanotechnology in Plant Pathology” is to provide its readers latest developments and updated comprehensive information on various aspects of nanomaterials, nanomolecules and nanosensors in relation to plant diseases.

This book fulfils the need for a comprehensive book on the significance of nanotechnology in plant pathology, which furnishes the latest information on this fast developing topic.The book “Nanotechnology in Plant Pathology” explicates essential aspects and is conveniently divided into nine unique chapters, covering the latest information and developments in nanotechnology with respect to plant diseases. The chapters include Introduction to nanotechnology, Categories and characterization of nanoparticles, Nanotechnology in plant disease diagnosis, Nanoparticles in plant disease management, Nanotechnology and pesticides, Nanotechnology in pesticides delivery, Regulations and risks in nanotechnology, Nanotoxicity and Nanosafety. Quality diagrams at appropriate places, convincing tables and suitable graphs / illustrations have been furnished for an impressive reading. Under each chapter, a bibliography providing the list of references cited has also been included for additional reading.

The contents of this book, reflecting an extensive literature search, will be useful particularly for teachers, researchers and students in Plant Pathology, the State Departments of Horticulture & Agriculture, Commercial protection centers, Administrators, Policy planners and all those who are interested and concerned with the use and application of nanoparticles in plant pathology.
