Nanotechnology in the agro sector: how TNS Nano influences the sector

“Muitas pesquisas com nanotecnologia no setor agro estão focadas na redução do uso de pesticidas e agrotóxicos, aumentar a eficiência dos fertilizantes, promover o aumento da produtividade, evitar o desperdício e perda de insumos ou produtos.”

No primeiro trimestre de 2021, o setor agro no Brasil cresceu 5,7% quando comparado com o mesmo período em 2020.

Em suma, esse resultado positivo é fruto de plentiful harvests e fortes investimentos em tecnologias para a agropecuária.

Segundo o Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE), a alta em relação ao ano passado ocorreu pelo aumento da produção e ganho de productivity nas lavouras de soja (+8,6%), fumo (+3,6%) e arroz (+0,3%).

Soybeans stand out, which has a record forecast for this year's harvest.

The boom in the sector agro indicates an important milestone for the recovery of the Brazilian economy.

In order to increase and optimize the good results, providing productive efficiency with sustainability, it is necessary to invest in technologies for the field.

Following the evolution of the sector, TNS develops chemical solutions in order to add technology to the Brazilian market.

Trend in Agro

Megatrend studies carried out by Embrapa (Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation) in partnership with other bodies and institutes point to a forecast of the agribusiness for the next ten years.

The study called: "Vision 2030: the future of Brazilian agriculture", analisa pontos como mudanças climáticas, socioeconômicas e espaciais relacionadas ao futuro da agricultura.

Cerca de 84% dos produtores que participaram da pesquisa utilizam ao menos uma tecnologia no processo de produção; 70% usam internet e tecnologia em atividades relacionadas à produção rural.

Nesse sentindo, indica uma necessidade cada vez maior do uso das tecnologias para o setor agro.

Challenges in crops

Independentemente do tamanho da lavoura, os desafios são os mesmos na agricultura, sendo eles: clima, pragas, doenças no plantio, variação do preço dos insumos agrícolas, produtividade e perdas, acesso às tecnologias, custos operacionais, infraestrutura adequada e logística de distribuição.

All these factors impact from sowing to the post-harvest na vida do produtor rural.

Mesmo diante de tantos desafios, o setor agro é essencial e continua com crescimento favorável.

O Brasil tem um enorme potencial para agricultura, principalmente quando consideramos o aumento da projeção populacional até 2050.

Segundo a Organização das Nações Unidas (ONU), estima-se uma população de quase 10 bilhões de pessoas.

Ou seja, o desafio será cada vez maior, e para atender a demanda, será necessário trazer para o agronegócio: produtividade, sustentabilidade e rentabilidade.

Por isso, a cada ano, surgem novas tecnologias que estão sendo inseridas nos processos de produção do campo.

Dessa forma, é possível garantir o aumento de produtividade, evitando o risco de perdas nas safra, visando um diferencial para o produtor.

Quando falamos de tecnologias aplicadas na agricultura, também nos deparamos com algumas limitações, por exemplo:

How TNS Nano influences the agro segment

Several solutions can be presented to solve the same problems: produce more with less and avoid wasting agricultural products and inputs, but few are really effective.

Many researches with nanotechnology in the agro sector are focused on reducing the use of pesticides and pesticides.

For example, the use of TNS nanoparticles in foliar fertilizers in the field, providing a productivity gain above 30% per hectare.

In the fight against rust, a common disease caused by fungi, the incidence dropped by around 15%.

Imagine all the advantages you would have in using a highly effective biocide, which could reduce the dose and ensure more health for your planting in a sustainable way.

Não só os benefícios financeiros seriam enormes, como também diminuiria o risco de contaminação ambiente e de toxicidade para os organismos não-alvos.

There is no doubt that the nanotechnology no setor agro é um grande diferencial e um dos maiores aliados na produção de alimentos.

Investir em novas tecnologias significa acompanhar as demandas e necessidades do mercado, a fim de garantir mais competitividade para o produtor e agregar maior valor à sua produção.

Tecnologia no agro, o futuro é agora!

De forma geral, pode-se dizer que o foco da nanotecnologia no setor agro, se difere das aplicações convencionais.

According to the agronomist engineer at TNS Nano, Tamires Naira, the objective is to strengthen the plantations and not fight against pests when they are already installed.

Above all, our focus is to develop additives that stimulate self-protection mechanisms, it is possible to ward off diseases and increase productivity.

The Health and Safety 925 it is a sustainable additive, composed of a suspension based on ions stabilized with plant extracts.

Furthermore, its formulation is stable, does not generate residues and does not accumulate trace elements in the morphological structures of plants, being a viable innovation that adds a positive impact.

Definitely, technological advance is an irreversible movement and increasingly present in our lives, and nanotechnology applied to agroindustry is a growing and necessary reality.

Finally, after mentioning the many benefits of nanotechnology in the agro sector, it is easy to understand the enormous potential that can be generated in your business at the time of cultivation and harvesting.

With the forecast of growth in the agro sector, this signals for the industry the need to prepare to meet a greater demand for technological solutions.

Therefore, TNS invests in high-end additives quality that add greater productivity, reduction of losses and profitability to the Brazilian producer.

Our additive, Health and Safety 925, has been tested on multiple crops, generating positive results ranging from plant vigor to their reproduction stage, offering healthy planting throughout the entire cycle.

It has compatibility with different molecules and its use with agricultural inputs is able to expand the effects of formulations through the synergy between the actives.

Finally, our additive, Abro-925, can add differentials focused on the development of plant metabolism and on helping to control phytopathogenic diseases.
