In modern era large amount of fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides are used in crops to achieve more production per unit area but using more dose than the optimum of these chemicals and fertilizers lead to several problems like environment pollution (soil, water and air), low input use efficiency, degrade the quality of produce, develop resistant to weeds, disease insect and pest, degrade the soil, causes deficiency of micronutrients in soil, toxicity to different beneficial living microorganism present above and below the soil etc. Excessive use of fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides also caused several health issues in population. Despite these problems there is also challenge to feed the growing population of country. Therefore in future, there is need to produce nutritive agricultural produce rich in protein and other essential nutrient required to the human and animal consumption that is why emphasis should be laid on production of high quality food with required quantity of nutrients and proteins. For solving these problems in crop production Nano-fertilizers, pesticides may be the effective tools in agriculture for better pest and nutrient management (Jyothi and Hebsur, 2017).
