Next Generation Micronutrient Nanofertilizers for Sustainable Crop Nutrition: A Review

Rajesh Kumar, Abhishek Dadhich, Abhijeet Singh and Madan Mohan Sharma


Today’s agricultural practices have caused harm to formerly healthy soil, brutally reducing essential minerals while disrupting the delicate balance of the neighbouring ecology. The excessive use of these conventional fertilizers degrades soil quality, pollutes the environment, and damages agronomic ecosystems. Nanofertilizers (NFs) are critical determining elements in agriculture for improving yield, growth, and providing improved nutrient utilization efficiency (UE), lower cultivation expenses, and reduced fertilizer waste. These items may be effective in addressing contemporary agricultural issues. Globally, micronutrients are encapsulated using various materials to increase their release, so that plants can have optimal nutrient availability, however plants are not obtaining the full advantage. This review identifies technological gaps that frequently exist in crop efficiency and micronutrient release, it proposes an innovative foresight involving technical and scientific theories, with a greater emphasis on enhancing the micronutrient use efficiency of critical elements such as Mn, Ni, Mo, Fe, B, Zn, and Cu by crops. Additional research is needed to truly comprehend their lasting impact on crop output and soil wellness.
