Food plays a vital role in human life as food features a nice influence on human health therefore food safety is incredibly important part in food industry and agriculture. There are several food contamination incidents (such as Australian strawberry contamination in 2018 and Taiwan food scandal in 2013,2014) and additional incidents like has driven countries to develop fast, sensitive and reliable ways to sight the food hazard as food has many artificial food additives and chemical residues. Nanosensors features a nice advantage to sight food parts in fast manner therefore nanosensor is an alternative which might be utilized in fast development. Linking nanosensors with trendy Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) permits novel and online ways for various parts detection accompanied with high accuracy. There are many sorts of nanosensors which are developed to fulfil the various necessities of food examination (carbon nanotubes based electrochemical sensors for detection of cations, microbial cells and toxins, anions and organic compounds in food, nanosensors for detection of external and internal conditions in food packaging, various aptameters for detection of pesticides, antibiotics, heavy metals). The paper reviews development and application of the foremost Nano sensors in agriculture and food industry.
