Nanotech out of science fiction into rural reality

Abstract:
Nanotechnology is not science fiction - and New Zealand farmers need to be gearing up to take advantages of the opportunities it will offer, agricultural economists say.

"A willingness to explore new technologies will improve the financial viability of our primary and downstream industries," the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) said yesterday.

The increasing ability to understand and control microscopic matter down to one nanometre - one-billionth of a metre - is set to trigger new market opportunities, and the quick identification of new processes and products will be crucial, MAF economists said yesterday in their annual outlook, known as SONZAF.
