A nanoparticle is a microscopic particle with at least one dimension ranges between 1 - 100 nm. Nanoparticles are different from bulk particles in terms of their physical, chemicals and biological properties. Nanoparticles in their different size acts differently sometime it can be used as crop protectants or sometime it can be used as fluorescent compounds and their application can be used in sensor development. Nanotechnology has become boon and its wide application in the field of agriculture increasing day by day. Still, guidelines for application of it’s in environment is in the pipeline.
