Nanotechnology is increasingly transforming agriculture and crop production, enabling the development of a new generation of agrochemicals aimed at reducing negative environmental impacts while maintaining crop yields. Scientific Reports, a journal from the Nature Research family, is proud to welcome original primary research articles for our upcoming “Nanotechnology in agriculture” Collection.
This Collection will gather interdisciplinary research focusing on nanoformulation of agrochemicals and other nanotechnological applications in agriculture. It will also provide a home for nanotoxicology research and will shed light on how nanomaterials interact with plants, their environment, and other organisms.
Submissions for this Collection will be open through the end of August 2019. More information about this Collection and how to submit a manuscript can be found here.
The Collection is Guest Edited by Doctor Alejandro Pérez-de-Luque, University of Córdoba, Spain. Alejandro Pérez-de-Luque holds a PhD in agronomical engineering from the University of Córdoba, Spain, and is a Tenured Scientist at the Department of Plant Breeding and Biotechnology at IFAPA, Spain. His main research areas cover resistance and defensive mechanisms of crops against pathogens, and nanotechnology applied to plant research and agriculture. He has been serving as Editorial Board Member for Scientific Reports since 2015.
