About the Book

Biotechnology applications in the field of agriculture have high potential to provide large benefits to the farming community, consumers and agribusiness sectors on a sustainable basis. In spite of this potential, the utilization of these technologies in India is quite low. Hence, there is a need for promoting public awareness and education on different aspects of these technologies and their proper utilization. This book, based on a series of workshops, seeks to inform readers about the present situation and growing opportunities for applying different forms of biotechnology in Indian agriculture. The contributors of the papers of this book are all in high positions and well experienced in Agricultural Biotechnology in differnt spheres. “The safe and responsible use of biotechnology will help us to meet the challenges ahead including those caused by climate changes.
