The observed effects were caused by the nanoparticles themselves. Development of nanoparticles needs improvements to reduce toxicity. Abstract The extensive use of pesticides is causing environmental pollution, affecting animal organisms in different habitats and also leading human health at risk.

The use of agrochemicals is crucial to modern agriculture, but the development of nanopesticides and nanofertilizers has received less, or at least delayed attention relative to other sectors of the food chain, such as food processing or packaging. Due to their direct and intentional application in the environment, nanoagrochemicals may be regarded as particularly critical in terms of possible environmental impact, as they (would) represent the only intentional diffuse source of engineered nanoparticles in the environment (Kah et al., 2013). The use of agrochemicals is associated with some risks for human and environmental health (e.g., contamination of water resources, residues on food products). Figure 1.

OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY 04/10/10 New approaches needed to gauge safety of nanotech-based pesticides.

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Nanotechnology is about to emerge in the world of pesticides and pest control, and a range of new approaches are needed to understand the implications for public health, ensure that this is done safely, maximize the potential benefits and prevent possible risks, researchers say in a new report.

OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY 04/10/10 New approaches needed to gauge safety of nanotech-based pesticides

In a study published today in the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health, scientists from Oregon State University and the European Union outline six regulatory and educational issues that should be considered whenever nanoparticles are going to be used in pesticides. “If we do it right, it should be possible to design nanoparticles with safety as a primary consideration, so they can help create pesticides that work better or are actually safer,” said Stacey Harper, an assistant professor of nanotoxicology at Oregon State University.

A program is already addressing that at OSU, as part of the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute. J. Agric.

Researchers focused their attention on silver nanoparticles (nanosilver), a substance that has been linked to environmental harm, bacterial resistance and not fully understood impacts on human health. Scientists say their findings represent a reliable method of testing foods for the harmful particles and hope to more broadly implement their technique in the future. The last decade has witnessed a large influx in the use of nanotechnology in consumer products, including food, clothing, cosmetics, fertilizers and pesticides. The growth of this technology has elicited strong reactions from scientists across the globe, with many asserting that further research is urgently needed to evaluate the potential impacts of these novel substances.

It has taken seven years and a lawsuit to force the EPA to act. And unfortunately, its action leaves much to be desired: there are still no requirements to protect nano-pesticide manufacturer workers, farmer workers and those living downwind from nano-pesticide drift.

Development of nanotechnologies has taken a significant extent since the 1970s.

These technologies concern all processes and manipulations of materials with at least one dimension that approximately measures 1–100 nm. Nanomaterials and applications derived from using nanotechnologies are of interest to agriculture. They present opportunities to help address the issues of sustainable agriculture by reducing agricultural inputs and improving productivity and food and water safety [1].

VETERINARY ENTOMOLOGY 21/01/15 Everything You Need To Know About Nanopesticides

In wooded Alsea, Oregon, Harper is more likely to be found hunting elk than sowing seeds. Rather, it’s Harper’s work in the laboratory that links her to the soil. A scientist at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Harper is doggedly researching tiny, human-made substances called nanoparticles, with the goal of identifying which will be a boon and which a bane for farmers, consumers and the environment. Nanoparticles, which are the size of molecules, are already used in everything from sunscreen to biomedical devices.

Their minuscule size makes them efficient, but also unpredictable. An engineer as well as a toxicologist, Harper holds a unique perspective. By shrinking the size of individual nanopesticide droplets, there is broad consensus — from industry to academia to the Environmental Protection Agency — that the total amount of toxins sprayed on agricultural fields could be significantly reduced.
