The book entitled: Organic and Biogenic Nano-Agri-Inputs in Sustainable Crop Production: A Path to Food Safety and Security will provide applied knowledge of organic and nano-agri-inputs in fields of organic agriculture, production of safe crop produce, food safety and their processing. Production of organic and nano-agri-input products, their regulations for commercialization in global market is helpful to industrial and academic sectors including research students, faculty, scientist of botany, microbiology, mycology, biotechnology, soil science, chemistry, environmental science, and plant pathology disciplines etc. This book aims to bring together the most recent findings in the field of organic agriculture and good agricultural practices to achieve food safety and quality for crops. The book chapters outlined provide a more understandable and novel approach to both basic and applied aspects of organic and biogenic nanomaterials for the controlled delivery of pesticides and fertilizers, as well as new insights into how to improve product safety while maintaining crop production efficiency and reducing pollution. Furthermore, the chapters contain agricultural topics that are documented by the most recent peer-reviewed research as reported by a large international scientific audience. The editors are confident that this book provides cutting-edge knowledge on both theoretical and applied aspects of nanotechnology in soil science, plant breeding, biotechnology, tools design, formulation, application, and management, as well as the effects of these tools on soil properties and plant characteristics, and some abiotic interactions. This book is aimed at graduate students, researchers, and professionals in agricultural and related disciplines, and for policymakers.
