Abstract:
Nano-sized plant nutrients increasingly attract attention.

Nanotech on farmers' fields

The Netherlands | Posted on August 27th, 2010

The many scientific studies and patent publications from the last decade reflect the growing interest in this innovative technology. Take for instance the coated nitrogen fertilisers with crop-specific nano-sized biosensors that regulate the release of his nutrient on the crops' demand.

The story about this groundbreaking plant nutrition approach is published in Nanotech on farmers' fields - a report compiling articles published in Beneficial nutrients news.

Nanotech on farmers' fields also has a recently conducted quick patent scan (June 2010; > 50 original patent publications) and 5 pages with relevant literature. All the articles in this report are written by the Dutch science journalist Gert van den Berg.

Nanotech on farmers' fields is a digital (PDF) publication of Landbouwkundige Uitgeverij G.C. van den Berg (Veenendaal, The Netherlands) and costs 45,00 ex VAT. The report can be ordered through the website www.silicon-nutrition.info
