Nutrient Management Corner

Abstract:
Nanotechnology. This seems like science fiction coming true! You may have heard about the use of nanotechnology in medicine but they are also researching using smart delivery systems on the nanoscale level to deliver fertilizers. What is nanotechnology? A very simple explanation is that it's manufacturing something at the molecular scale where you can control placement of individual atoms. This can increase the efficiency of fertilizers. The nano-sensors could have the ability to detect and treat a nutrient deficiency before symptoms are evident. Often by the time you see the symptom, the damage has been done and yield and quality has decreased. There continues to be vigorous debate over the use of nanotechnology. The Canadian Federal government is working on developing policy on nanotechnology in fertilizers and supplements.
