An alternative to synthetic pesticides composed of active ingredients diluted into nanoemulsions and existing biopesticides. It controls insects, fungi, weeds, and other pests in an eco-friendly and economical approach.
An alternative to synthetic pesticides composed of active ingredients diluted into nanoemulsions and existing biopesticides. It controls insects, fungi, weeds, and other pests in an eco-friendly and economical approach.

A biopesticide with low toxicity rates, composed of active ingredients diluted in nanoemulsions and existing biopesticides, such as neem, juniper, garlic essential oils, and a variety of plant extracts. Nano-biopesticides are anti-fungal and anti-insecticidal agents that simultaneously act as pest control. The preparation of nano-biopesticides happens through adsorption, attachment, entrapment, and encapsulation techniques. Their particles are smaller and lighter than current synthetic pesticides and can cover a broader surface area. Also, nano-biopesticides composite matrix and emulsion-based nanodroplet-oriented formulation can increase biopesticide molecule solubility and stability.
