Nano-enabled Sustainable and Precision Agriculture (Paperback)

Awaiting publication


Nano-enabled Sustainable and Precision Agriculture is the first single-volume resource to cover this important field using a whole systems approach that considers both opportunities and challenges. The book provides a comprehensive understanding of the role of nanotechnology in agriculture from broad aspects, but also includes a comprehensive view of the interaction of nanomaterials with soil-plant systems. It highlights aspects not described in previous books, including the application of nanoinformatics and artificial intelligence in nano-enabled sustainable agriculture, the application of nanotechnology in alternative forms of agriculture such as hydroponics, and regulatory frameworks for this research field.

The book addresses all these aspects by including sections on enhanced sustainability, reduced pollution and enhanced ecosystems' health, and the role of nanoinformatics and machine learning.

Peng Zhang is a Professor of Technical Physics at Nanyang Normal University, Peoples Republic of China. Iseult Lynch holds a PhD in Chemistry from University College Dublin, Ireland. She is Chair (Professor) of Environmental Nanosciences at the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Birmingham (UoB). She was recently awarded the 2020 John Jeyes prize for Environmental Sciences from the Royal Society of Chemistry for her research into the impacts of the acquired ecological corona on nanomaterials ecotoxicity. Her research interests span human and environmental impacts of engineered and anthropogenic nanoscale materials including development of predictive models and environmental applications of nanomaterials, with a focus on nanomaterials interactions with secreted biomolecules and the implications of this for the nanomaterials themselves and ecosystems. She is interested in the development of in silico approaches for predicting nanomaterials interactions and impacts. Jason C. White is Director of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, the oldest Agricultural Experiment Station in the country. He is Managing Editor for the International Journal of Phytoremediation, on the editorial boards of Environmental Pollution and NanoImpact and on the Editorial Advisory Boards of Environmental Science & Technology and Environmental Science & Technology Letters and the Immediate Past President of the International Phytotechnology Society. His primary research program focuses food safety and security, with specific interests on the impact of nanomaterials on agricultural plants and on the use of nanotechnology to sustainably increase food production and promote global food security. He has secondary appointments at the Harvard University TH Chan School of Public Health, the University of Texas-El Paso, the University of Massachusetts, and Post University. h-index is 51, i-10 index is 164 and he has published approximately 240 papers that have been cited 11,991 times. Professor Handy has served on many international working groups and scientific committees; most recently on nanomaterials for the OECD, US NNI, and founder member of the UK Nanotechnology task force working on aspects of ecotoxicology. He also advises on animal welfare and alternative techniques, and is expert on whole animal biology.
