About The Books

Biotechnology for Agriculture and Environment is a collection of critical reviews and discusses the application of biotechnology to increase agricultural productivity and improve the livelihoods of millions of poor people through sustainable and eco-friendly approaches. Biotechnology has long been used to make everyday products (e.g. the use of microorganisms, such as bacteria or fungi, to manufacture cheese, wine and antibiotics). The scope of this term has changed overtime as new technologies have been invented. Agricultural biotechnology is a safe and beneficial technology that contributes to both environmental and economic sustainability. Farmers choose biotech crops because they increase yield and lower production costs. Farmers get a greater financial return while using more environmentally friendly farming practices through the use of agricultural biotechnology. Biotechnology is being used to provide alternative cleanertechnologies which will help to further reduce the hazardous environmental implications of the traditional technologies. E.g. some Fermentation technologies have some serious environmental implications. Various biotechnological processes have been devised in which all nutrients introduced for fermentation are retained in the final product, which ensures high conversion efficiency and low environmental impact. It is a very useful book, well written in concise, illustrative and innovative style making it easyfor an average readerto be able to understand and enjoy it.
