Plant biotechnology is an exciting and rapidly developing field. Plant biotechnology is an extension
of traditional plant breeding with one very important difference – plant biotechnology allows for the
transfer of a greater variety of genetic information in a more precise, controlled manner. The
benefits of agricultural biotechnology and, specifically, plant biotechnology, are now at the
forefront of international interest as having great potential to influence and benefit agriculture.
