Abstract: Nanomaterials have been recently proposed in a multitude of contexts as the groundbreaking materials to deal with a broad range of problems and surpass the limits posed by traditional approaches. In agriculture, novel and groundbreaking tools have been developed employing nanomaterials to deliver agrochemicals to plants for both improving nutrition (nanofertilisers) and protecting plants (nanopesticides), but reducing the impact of these compounds on environment and health by reducing the global amounts provided and improving the efficiency of their actions. To deal with the same problems but with a more eco-friendly and sustainable approach biodegradable materials and microorganisms were employed. Because of the preferential sessile lifestyle of bacteria in environments, named biofilm, and the ecological advantages of such microbial organisation, especially in soil and in proximity of roots, the study here proposed was specifically focused on generating nanofibrous scaffolds of polycaprolactone (PCL) by electrospinning for the development of bacteria biofilms and their possible applications in agriculture. This study pointed out the interactions between bacteria and electrospun materials and the potentials for the resulting biofilmed scaffolds for creating suitable nanotools for agricultural applications.
