“Agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy. About 60 percent population of our country is dependent on agriculture. Due to green revolution the food grains production has been increased by four folds. To fulfill the demand of the ever increasing population the food grains production should be doubled in the year 2050 and Biotechnology will play an important role in achieving this goal. At present there is tremendous scope for the agricultural biotechnologists in research and development centers (R&D) of public and private sectors.
Biotechnology provides an opportunity to convert bio-resources into economic wealth. This has to be done in a manner that there is no adverse impact either on the environment or on human and animal health. The bottom line of our national agricultural biotechnology policy should be the economic wellbeing of farm families, food security of the nation, health security for the consumer, protection of the environment and the security of our national and international trade in farm commodities. Infusion of new technology is necessary to maintain our agricultural enterprise competitive and remunerative. Modern science of biotechnology is relevant to various areas of agriculture including Crops, Animals, Fisheries, Agro-Forestry and Agro-Processing.”.
