The techniques of nanotechnology are largely utilized in plant protection, food production, processing, packing and carriage of agricultural products and quality enhancement and environmental quality controlling management. It has a lot of capability to create agriculture more and more effective by utilizing nanoagricultural chemicals and nanosensors. Nanoceramic instruments, nanopore filters, nanofeeds, nanofiltrations, nanolaminations, nanodelivery system can accurately transfer the drugs or micro nutrients at the suitable time and to the right part of the materials. Researches in the field of nanobiotechnology are becoming more and more advanced towards the capability of sequencing DNA in the nanofabrication gel freed systems which would be best suitable to allow for significant fast DNA mapping of different crop germplasms can highly give useful knowledge about different molecular markers in association with agronomically along with economically important characters. So, nanobiotechnology can boost up the worth of progress in molecular markers assisted breeding programs for the crop improvement. By the use of these engineered nanoscale materials in agriculture sector, foods and environment can have problems for the human consumptions and environment. The deficiency of enough scientific information about major risk-assessment features i.e. nanoparticles toxicity facts, bioaccumulations, ingestion risks or exposure knowledge leads towards the most concerned scenes. After the great advancements in nanobiotechnological techniques will lead to success in applications of this that agriculture will pick up.

Keywords: Nanosensors, Researches, Nanoparticles, Risks, Nanobiotechnology, DNA sequencing.
