Nanotechnology holds significant promise across diverse sectors, including agriculture, food processing, energy, transportation, and communication systems. This swiftly evolving domain revolves around the development of groundbreaking materials and devices that tackle intricate engineering and scientific hurdles across various sectors. In agriculture and food processing, nanotechnology unfolds a myriad of potentialities. Its potential extends to the development of various products such as nano-fertilizers, nano-herbicides, nano-pesticides, and nano-scale carriers. Additionally, it plays a pivotal role in tackling water contaminants and enhancing veterinary care, fisheries, and food processing. The integration of nanotechnology has led to a revolution in these industries by introducing groundbreaking techniques like precision farming, optimizing input usage, disease detection and control, and creating robust systems for processing and packaging. Moreover, nanotechnology has reshaped healthcare by contributing to the emergence of nanomedicine. Traditional medicinal practices are gradually making way for nanomedicine, with its applications spanning the preparation, characterization, and utilization of particles tailored for healthcare products. This shift provides an opportunity to preserve and explore traditional medicine systems by rationalizing the use of nanomedicine. In the context of disease management research, a multidisciplinary approach encompasses the development of traditional medicine, herbal formulations, dietary supplements, phytochemicals, and pharmaceuticals derived from natural resources. Nanomedicine is indispensable for elevating the standards of quality, effectiveness, and safety of these products. As medicinal plants have historically played a vital role in treating human and animal diseases, the contemporary interest in medicinal and aromatic plants is on the rise. The benefits of plant-based medicines and products are being rediscovered, contributing to the evolving landscape of healthcare. Thus nanotechnology’s versatility extends to agriculture, food processing, and healthcare, offering novel solutions to complex challenges while preserving and integrating traditional practices for a more comprehensive approach to research and development.
