The main motivation to use nanomaterials in pesticide formulations is to increase the solubility of the active ingredient. This has some advantages over conventional pesticides with regard to controlled and targeted release, protection against the degradation of the active ingredient, and hence overall an increased efficiency for pest control. Collectively, this enables reducing the dose of the active ingredient while achieving comparable or even better performance of the product.
