Tata set to go nano, focus on high-value fertilisers

Abstract:
Tata Chemicals is looking at entering the biotech business using nano-science as a base, chairman Ratan Tata said on Monday. The company is also increasing its focus on crop-specific, high-value fertilisers to improve realisations and profitability.

(Ed.'s note: "In nanotechnology, smaller particles are programmed to perform the same function as its bigger counterpart." First time that I've seen this unique definition. Usually, we look for properties that appear at the nanoscale; properties that are different than those found when you scale larger than "nano")
