Biochemical interactions of nanoparticulate materials in the environment present a fairly complex situation due to a large number of available biochemical pathways. Insufficient knowledge about the interaction mechanisms involved means most of the experimental observations gathered are mixed up with ambiguous results. Taking the example of nanotechnology-enabled agriculture in the future, several beneficial impacts of green chemistry-based nanoparticulates (NPs) are expected to improve disease-tolerant crops with better yields. The critical issues involved in designing a plan of action in this context are briefly introduced in the present chapter after describing the agricultural bioorganisms and nanoparticulate species entering industrial plants on a large scale. This chapter aims to excite the imaginations of the readers by contributing to the future development of nanoagriculture. 

Keywords: Importance, Nanoparticulate material, NP-soil microorganism interaction, Properties, Soil microorganisms.
