A specialized course under Agricultural Stream
About the Course – Agriculture Biotechnology
Agricultural biotechnology is a field of agricultural science which involves the use of scientific tools and techniques, including genetic engineering, molecular markers, molecular diagnostics, vaccines, and tissue culture. The purpose is to modify living organisms: plants, animals, and microorganisms. One of the fields of agricultural biotechnology is Crop biotechnology which has been greatly developed in recent times. In order to modify plants or crops, some features are transferred from a particular species of Crop to an entirely different species. This process helps to develop or form new desirable characteristics in the newly modified crops such as flavor, colour of flowers, growth rate, size of harvested products and resistance to diseases and pests.
The application of biotechnology in agriculture has a great deal of benefits to farmers, producers, and consumers. Biotechnology has helped in controlling insects and weed management has been made safer and easier while safeguarding crops against disease.
