FAPESP Week France 2019 | Leonardo Fernandes Fraceto

Published in November 25, 2019 - Agência FAPESP. Technical Session 6: Materials, Nano or Bionano. Nano-based biopesticides: a new paradigm towards more sustainable agriculture. Pesticides are widely used to enhance agriculture yields, although the fraction of the pesticides applied in the field that reach the targets is less than 1%. Such indiscriminate use of chemical pesticides is disadvantageous due to the cost implications and increasing human health and environmental concerns. In recent years, the utilization of nanotechnology to create novel formulations has shown great potential for diminishing the indiscriminate use of pesticides and providing environmentally safer alternatives. In this context, nano-based biopesticides can be designed to efficiently delivery sufficient amounts of active ingredients in response to biotic and/or abiotic stressors that act as triggers, employing targeted and controlled release mechanisms. In this talk we will provide the last developments in nanotechnology applied to agriculture with focus in the understanding the mechanisms of action and toxicity and their potential to be used in sustainable agriculture, highlighting the challenges that need to be overcome in order to contribute to crop protection and increase food security.
