  • Environmental context Nanopesticides are increasingly being developed for agricultural use, but knowledge concerning their environmental fate and effects is limited. This microcosm study brings new results about soil fate and bioaccumulation of polymeric or lipid nanoparticles carrying chlorpyrifos or tebuconazole. The nanoformulations significantly altered the fate and bioavailability of the pesticides in soil even under the real-world and complex conditions of microcosms. Abstract An… CONTINUE READING
