- ... There has been an increasing influx of nanopesticides into agriculture in recent years. Understanding the interaction between nanopesticides and edible plants is crucial in evaluating the potential impact of nanotechnology on the environment and agriculture. Here we exposed lettuce plants to Cu(OH)₂ nanopesticides (1050–2100 mg/L) through foliar spray for one month. Inductively coupled plasma-mass ...
