Plant Biotechnology & Agricultural Biotechnology

Biotechnology is being used to address problems in all areas of Agricultural Production and processing. This includes Plant breeding to raise and stabilize yields; to improve resistance to pests, diseases and abiotic stresses such as drought and cold; and to enhance the nutritional content of foods. Modern Agricultural Biotechnology improves crops in more targeted ways. The best known technique is genetic modification, but the term Agricultural Biotechnology (or green biotechnology) also covers such techniques as Marker Assisted Breeding, which increases the effectiveness of Conventional Breeding.

Plant breeding is the art and science of changing the traits of plants in order to produce desired characteristics. Plant breeding can be accomplished through many different techniques ranging from simply selecting plants with desirable characteristics for propagation, to more complex molecular techniques (see cultigens and cultivars).Plant breeding has been practiced for thousands of years, since near the beginning of human civilization. It is practiced worldwide by individuals such as gardeners and farmers, or by professional plant breeders employed by organizations such as government institutions, universities, crop-specific industry associations or research centers.
