    The National Research Council’s report—Bio-based Industrial Products: Priorities for Research and Commercialization (NRC ) provided scientific legitimization for the concept of the bio-based economy, and proposed conservative targets (Table 1). I believe that the targets should be much more aggressive in date achievement. Other reports include Plant/Crop-Based Renewable Resources investment in new production facilities are comparatively rare. Clearly, the industry needs to explore new ways to create a sustainable competitive advantage. Fortunately, a golden opportunity is to be found in increasing the applications of industrial biotechnology and biobased feedstock for the fermentation-based chemical industry.

A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Saurabh Bhatia, Kiran Sharma, in Modern Applications of Plant Biotechnology in Pharmaceutical Sciences, Introduction.

Plant biotechnology is a powerful tool for the development of new plant traits and varieties. Such new varieties must be produced on a large scale to achieve commercial success and to satisfy the demand from growers. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) requested that the Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources of the National Research Council (NRC) convene a panel of experts to examine whether publicly funded agricultural research has influenced the structure of U.S.

agriculture and, if so, how. United Nations This book presents the key debates that took place during the high-level segment of the Economic and Social Council, at which ECOSOC organized its first biennial DevelopmentFile Size: 5MB. Modern biotechnology refers to various scientific techniques used to produce specific desired traits in plants, animals or microorganisms through the use of genetic knowledge.

Since its introduction to agriculture and food production in the early’s, biotechnology has been utilized to develop new tools for improving productivity.

Agriculture-based livelihood systems that are already vulnerable to food insecurity face immediate risk of increased crop failure, new patterns of pests and diseases, lack of appropriate seeds and planting material, and loss of livestock.

ecosystems evaluated for the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment 55 Table 7. Global terrestrial carbon. As mentioned above, biotechnology is not new, since human civilization has been exploiting living organisms to solve problems and improve our way of life for millennia.

The production technologies and processes involved in animal husbandry, agriculture, horticulture, etc, utilize plants and animals to produce useful products. New technologies will be needed to ease the workload on farmers: Operations will be done remotely, processes will be automated, risks will be identified, and issues solved.

Variety of technologies. The systems and technology used in aquaculture has developed rapidly in the last fifty years. They vary from very simple facilities (e.g. family ponds for domestic consumption in tropical countries) to high technology systems (e.g.

intensive closed systems for export production).

As ofSingapore's medtech industry was worth more than $ 3 billion USD, and the government aims to grow its medtech and biotech sectors considerably.

Singapore serves as a. Critics of the use of advanced biotechnologies in the agri-food sector (“New Breeding Techniques”, comprising CRISPR) demand a strict regulation of any such method, even more severe than rules applied to so-called “Genetically Modified Organisms” (i.e. recombinant DNA processes and products).

But their position is unwarranted, since it relies on faulty arguments. USDA's Agricultural Baseline Projections, an annual report published in February that offers year projections for the farm sector from USDA's annual long-term analysis.

The associated Baseline Database covers projections for the four major feed grains (corn, sorghum, barley, and oats) in addition to the other major feed crops and livestock. It is fortuitous that as we have entered the new millennium and were seeking a technological breakthrough which may spearhead agricultural production in the next 30 years at a pace faster than that during the past 30 years (the Green Revolution era), modern biotechnology with multiple and far reaching potential has appeared on the horizon.

Agricultural extension programmes have been one of the main conduits of addressing rural poverty and food insecurity. This is because, it has the means to transfer technology, support rural adult learning, assist farmers in problem-solving and getting farmers actively involved in the agricultural knowledge and information system [].Extension is defined by FAO [] as; “systems that should.

The advantages are numerous, including year-round crop production, protection from weather, support urban food autonomy and reduced transport costs.

In the media, drones have mostly been associated with the military and spying, plus the odd pizza-delivery publicity stunt, but it could become one of the most useful innovations in agriculture, if used wisely. The global area sown to genetically modified (GM) varieties of leading commercial crops (soybean, maize, canola, and cotton) has expanded over fold over two decades.

Thirty countries are producing GM crops and just five countries (United States, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, and India) account for almost 90% of the GM production. Only four crops account for 99% of worldwide GM crop area.

Agricultural innovation, in the broadest sense, potentially can assist in meeting the first of the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals (MGD)—to reduce by half the number of people in extreme poverty and hunger by [].This MGD goal may be partially addressed by focusing on agricultural needs such as sufficient food production, access to water for agricultural purposes, and.

Food security is a measure of the availability of food and individuals' ability to access it. Affordability is only one factor. There is evidence of food security being a concern many thousands of years ago, with central authorities in ancient China and ancient Egypt being known to release food from storage in times of famine.

At the World Food Conference the term "food security" was. The UN Human Development Report (HDR) "Making New Technologies Work for Development" (UN, a) identified biotechnology as a key avenue for the socio-economic advancement of the developing countries. A goldmine of opportunities in the corporate world, biotechnology enriches the way we do and teach science which has emerged as a global player.Agroforestry, cultivation and use of trees and shrubs with crops and livestock in agricultural systems.

Agroforestry seeks positive interactions between its components, aiming to achieve a more ecologically diverse and socially productive output from the land than is possible through conventional restry is a practical and low-cost means of implementing many forms of.

A detailed retrospective of the Green Revolution, its achievement and limits in terms of agricultural productivity improvement, and its broader impact at social, environmental, and economic levels is provided. Lessons learned and the strategic insights are reviewed as the world is preparing a “redux” version of the Green Revolution with more integrative environmental and social impact.
