Gene technology

Crops can be given new genes through genetic engineering, improving their growth and disease resistance. Gene technology does, however, come with dangers.

The precise location of a gene insert cannot be manipulated using first-generation genetic engineering techniques. The possibility exists that a genetically modified plant won't endure. Additionally, it is possible to give plants toxic materials.

For instance, plant tissue contains high concentrations of heavy metals. Fortunately, scientists are working to modify plants so that they can store these heavy metals in their roots or leaves.

The creation of municipal sludge fertilizer is one of the additional potential applications of genetic engineering. On degraded land, plants that have been genetically modified can grow. This can boost the amount of beneficial nutrients in the soil and increase disease resistance.

Concerns exist regarding how gene technology will impact people's health as well. For instance, researchers have found that plants can produce poisonous substances to protect themselves from predators. These substances may also be released into the environment.

Challenges in plant biotechnology

The goal of plant biotechnology is to raise the quality of plant-based foods and edible oil for human consumption. Agriculture, food, energy, and pharmaceuticals all use it. In the future, disease and pest resistance management will be a part of this.

Modern technology's recent emergence has given plant science a fresh perspective. These developments have made it possible for plant scientists to comprehend the molecular mechanisms underlying numerous significant processes in plants.

The study of the processes that result in plant resistance has expanded significantly over the last two decades. Today, breeding programs make use of the knowledge discovered through research on these processes.

Legal restrictions, however, have prevented the commercialization of genetically modified crops. Up until now, agronomic traits and biotic stresses have dominated plant breeding programs.
