Abstract:
With a very high rate of increase in world population the food production has to be increased by 70% to meet the demands of the increasing population. Because of deleterious effect of pesticides and fertilizers used to enhance the crop yields the soil has get contaminated with the recalcitrant, so we need newer technologies to reduce the use of such deleterious substances and simultaneously increase the yield with compromising the quality. Biotech crops will ensure that there is plenty of food to feed the growing population and with enhanced nutritional qualities. With the increase in the knowledge about the GM crops the production has increased from 1.7 million hectares in 1996 to 179.7 million hectares in 2015. 17 to 18 million farmers have adopted GM technology making biotech crops the fastest adopted crop technology in recent times.
