Agricultural Biotechnology

Many new plant varieties being developed or grown by farmers have been produced using genetic engineering, which involves manipulating the plant's genes through techniques of modern molecular biology often referred to as recombinant DNA technology. These techniques are included in what is often referred to as "biotechnology" or "modern biotechnology. Assessing the environmental safety of a biotech plant requires an understanding of the biology of the plant itself and the practices used in its cultivation. This knowledge is important in identifying and evaluating potential environmental. The development of an effective national biosafety system is important to encourage the growth of domestic biotechnologies; to ensure safe access to new products and technologies developed elsewhere; and to build public confidence that products in the marketplace are safe. risks and also in designing any appropriate risk management measures.
Most countries use similar environmental risk assessment approaches, which include:
 
• Evaluating the role of the introduced gene in the plant and any changes in the plant’s characteristics
• The possible unintended secondary effects on non-target organisms
• The possibility that the modified plant could persist longer in the environment or invade new habitats
• The likelihood and consequences of the potential spread of newly introduced traits to related plants
• Potential impacts on biodiversity
Farmers Benefit from Agricultural Biotechnology Seeds. Decades of documented evidence demonstrates that agricultural biotechnology is a safe and beneficial technology that contributes to both environmental and economic sustainability. Farmers choose biotech crops because they increase yield and lower production costs.
