Traditional breeding techniques have been used for years to alter the genomes of plants and animals. With the progress of science and technology, many achievements have been made by humans in the field of biology. Advances in genetic engineering have made it possible to precisely control the genetic changes introduced into an organism. Crops are the most frequently cited examples of genetically modified organisms (GMO). In recent years, with the rapid development of genetically modified (GM) technology and its application...
I will be writing on how adversely unfavourable climatic conditions can affect the crops and farmers. Climate and agriculture work hand in hand with each other or precisely saying they are closely associated and interdependent. So, climate leaves an impound impact on agriculture, it could be adverse if it shows unseasonal or unexpected activities. India is an enormous producer of various types of natural crops, fruits, vegetables and spices. Punjab is the hub for massive number of crops. In recent...
Genetically modified foods will enhance food security. Food security is defined as 'when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life' (World Food Summit, 1996). Genetically modified foods (GM foods) are used in the agricultural industry to increase crop protection (resistance against plant viruses/diseases and tolerance towards herbicides); and additionally, are of greater nutritional benefit to the...
