Plant and Agriculture Biotechnology

Plant biotechnology is a field of plant science that applied to introduce desirable traits into plants through genetic modification for adaptation of plants for specific needs. Plant biotechnologies that assist in developing new traits include genetics and genomics, molecular markers, and transgenic (genetic engineered) crops. Agricultural biotechnology focuses on developing genetically modified plants to increase crop yields or some kind of stress factor on the plant and pests. Based on knowledge of DNA sequences, scientists have developed solutions to increase agricultural productivity.

Biotechnology has been practiced for an extended time, as folks have wanted to enhance agriculturally necessary organisms selectively and breeding. Gene-splicing may end up in improved keeping properties to create transport of recent manufacture easier, giving shoppers access to nutritionally valuable whole foods and preventing decay, damage, and loss of nutrients.
