Crop Modification: Biotech and Non-Biotech Approaches

H.D. Kumar (Author)
Synopsis This book introduces the reader to the pros and cons of genetic modification of crops and to the related "terminator" technology with special reference to their adoption in developing countries. In pointing out the benefits of transgenic crops and any perceived or potential risks of such crops or their food products, the book conveys the message that the bourgeoning populations of developing countries necessitate recourse to high-yielding genetically modified crops if the poor have to be fed and famines averted. At the same time however, certain alternatives to controversial technologies are suggested to minimize any hitherto undetected risks. The book should prove informative to students of agriculture, biotechnology, botany, genetics, agronomy and plant pathology.
