Proponents of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) advocate its use to reduce or eliminate the use of chemical pesticides in agriculture, since excessive pesticide use may be a threat to both human health and the environment. Proponents of biotechnology believe that the use of novel products, such as transgenic plants with insect resistance, will reduce the need for chemical pesticides. The book examines the issues by reviewing the experience of GM, insect-resistant cotton, the most widely grown GM crop in developing countries. The book begins with an introduction to agricultural biotechnology, a brief examination of the history of cotton production technology (and the institutions required to support that technology), and a Brand: Taylor And Francis.

  Efforts to redirect biotechnology to address the needs of low-income families in developing countries should be part of a larger policy framework that addresses other social issues. More important, such strategies should be components of policies designed to use science and technology to achieve sustainable development goals, as proposed in Cited by: Appropriate and Sustainable Plant Biotechnology Applications for Food Security in Developing Economies: /ch Appropriate plant biotechnology applications could be a major tool in the fight against hunger and poverty, especially in developing economies.

Agricultural Biotechnology in Developing Countries: Towards Optimizing the Benefits for the Poor addresses the major constraints. Twenty-three chapters, written by a wide range of scholars and stake-holders, provide an up-to-date analysis of agricultural biotechnology developments in Latin America, Africa.

Lebensmittel und Biotechnologie "This book achieves a good balance of background scientific information on food crops in developing countries and information on the social environment which has given these crops their importance to a particular society.

Successful adoption of any new technology in developing countries will depend on the availability of technologies appropriate for local agricultural conditions, and policies that enhance the. Opportunities and constraints in agricultural biotechnology in developing countries are of significance in responding to the challenge of poverty in the 21st century (Persley and Lantin, ) as they influence the development of national strategies that minimize environmental, health and social risks; and that address the nutritional needs of poor-resource farmers.

The United Nations Decade for the Eradication of Poverty Decade Cited by:   Agricultural Biotechnology & Policy Processes in Developing Countries Modern agricultural biotechnology has profound implications for global and local agricultural and food systems, and for the livelihoods of farmers in the developed and developing worlds.

After a slow start many developing countries are now investing in agricultural biotechnology. Although these countries face several constraints, efforts are being made to promote biotechnology.

Entrepreneurial Approach to Biotechnology Policies and Development in India: /ch Biotechnology is globally recognized as a rapidly emerging and far-reaching technology. It is aptly called “technology of hope”, as its promising to beCited by: 1. This paper assesses the prospects for the application of biotechnology to agriculture in developing countries.

It discusses recent advances in plant and animal biotechnology, the future prospects for plant and animal breeding, veterinary and crop protection, industrial processes and forestry.

Introduction. Most investments in agricultural biotechnology 1 have centered on widely consumed crops that are traded internationally, such as maize, rice, wheat, cotton, soybeans, and canola (James, ).Neither the public nor the private sector has invested significantly in genetic technologies in the more diverse minor or “orphan” crops that are often critical in the world’s most Cited by:   Biotechnology is the integration of the new techniques emerging from modern biotechnology with the well-established approaches of traditional biotechnology.

It is a set of enabling techniques for bringing about specific human-made changes in DNA, or genetic material, in plants, animals and microbial systems, leading to useful products and.

What is needed is effective international technology partnerships to enable developing countries to benefit from biotechnology R&D. However, much will depend on the level of domestic technological capacity in developing countries and the kind of global biotechnology governance system that emerges from the current policy debates.
