Plant and Agricultural Biotechnology
Plant biotechnology is a specific area of plant science which brings about technological upgrades in plant species through genetic modifications such as genetic engineering, tissue culture etc. Agricultural biotechnology is also known as agritech, the area of agricultural science which is majorly used to alter the genome sequence of crops in order to construct our desirable products in terms of flavor, growth rate, size of harvested products and also those that are resistant to pests or herbicides and vitamin fortification. Thus these crops are termed as transgenic or genetically modified crops. It is also called as Green Biotechnology as it enhances plants with disease resistant and increased productivity.
