Nanotechnology has a broad range of applications in the sectors of agriculture, industrial and medicinal sectors. Conventional toxic chemicals harm the fate of the environment which has encouraged researchers to develop different formulations of nanoparticles. These formulations have changed the characteristic properties of nanoparticles. Nano encapsulation and nano emulsions or polymer-based have improved water solubility; the dissolution rate of complex compounds while keeping the consistency of active compounds which function as insecticides remains the same. In this review importance of developing eco-friendly nanoparticle-based insecticides and management of plant disease by nanotechnology for sustainable agriculture are being acknowledged.
