ABSTRACT: The development of technology provides a new way in all areas of living. Agriculture is considered as the oldest area which is highly essential for life of earth. Agriculture plays a crucial role in the life of an economy. The importance of agriculture in a country is to provide a Source of Livelihood, Contribution to National Income, Supply of Food and Fodder, Importance in International Trade, Marketable Surplus, Source of Raw Material, Importance in Transport, Contribution to Foreign Exchange Resources, Vast Employment Opportunities, Overall Economic Development, Source of Saving, Source of Government Income and the Basis of Economic Development. As the population growth increases the land area for agriculture is reduced. To obtain the best yield from less space technology is combined with agriculture. Various education institutions for agricultural studies are developing (Mark Brock -Innovative Farmer of the Year 2012). The recent technology which finds a great leap in all the fields is ‘nanotechnology’. This leads to the combination of the art of nano with agriculture.

KEYWORDS: Fabric sensors; Electrospinning; Photocatalysis; nano-fungicides; nano-pesticides
