Agricultural Biotechnology: A Global Strategic Business Report

Biotechnology is considered to be the most promising technology that can provide lasting solution to various problems, ranging from food shortage to preservation of environmental resources. Agricultural biotechnology is the only technology that is likely to offer increased yields needed. Worldwide, the agricultural biotechnology domain is increasingly becoming popular, as the technology provides farmers with solutions to grow plants that offer higher per-acre crop yield, resistance to insect pests and diseases, reduce production costs, and are environmentally friendly. The acreage under biotech crops increased by 333 million in 2009 as against 311 million in 2008 worldwide. However, biotech industry faces stiff opposition from worldwide consumer and environmental bodies who oppose research in this area. Worldwide nations have set different standards regarding the amount of Genetically Modified (GM) ingredients that can be approved without pasting a label. The biotechnology industry also faces challenges in the wake of global economic recession.

The United States represents the largest market worldwide for agricultural biotechnology, as stated by the new market research report on Agricultural Biotechnology.
