  Due to development of modern systems for environmental condition monitoring, nanotechnology is able to improve human understanding for the biology of different crops and ultimately significantly enhance yields or nutritional values. In addition, it can offer routes to add value in crops or environmental remediation and also likely to revolutionize the next stage of development of genetically modified crops and plant breeding, molecular nanotechnology, plant disease diagnostics, efficient fertilizers and chemicals pesticides, post-harvest technology, soil management, water purification, animal production inputs, and precision farming techniques [1]. The environmental problems caused by overuse of the agrochemicals, particularly the pesticides, have attracted a lot of attention of scientists in recent years engaged in basic research. Nano scale techniques are also applying to enable the targeted delivery as well as increasing the toxicity of application of pesticide.
