National Centre of Excellence for Advanced Research in Agricultural Nanotechnology (NCEARAN)

The National Facility for Nanotoxicological Research of Nano-Agriproducts (NCNRNAP) is working in collaboration with AIIMS, New Delhi and endeavors to facilitate development of safe nano-Agriproducts by following standard in vitro and in vivo test guidelines.

In vitro and in vivo nanotoxicological research is pivotal for fulfilling the regulatory requirements and commercialization of nano-agriproducts. The facility is focused to conduct investigation of the effects of the nano-agriproducts on human health and environment using in vitro and in vivo model systems for toxicity and risk assessment.

Development of Nano-Agriproducts
  • Development of novel efficacious variants of Nanofertilizers (S, Mo, Mg and B) and nanofungicides (copper and sulphur) through biological/green methods
  • Development of nanobased delivery system for sustained release of nano agri-inputs
  • Process scale-up of developed nano-agriproduct prototypes for technology transfer to industries world-wide

Field Efficacy Evaluation of nanoproducts prototypes
  • Field performance and efficacy assessment of nano-agri products
  • Development of high-throughput bioassays for efficacy assessment of nano-agriproducts
