The rapid progress being made in genomics may enhance plant breeding as the functions of more genes and how they control particular traits are identified. This may enable more successful breeding for complex traits, such as drought and salt tolerance. J. Persley worldwide, because breeding for such traits, has had limited success with conventional breeding of the major staple food crops. Applications of Biotechnology for Poverty Reduction and Food Security Breakthroughs in modern science have led to rapid progress in understanding the genetic basis of living organisms and the ability to use that understanding to develop new products and processes useful in human and animal health, food and agriculture and the environment.

J. Persley completion. The new scientific discipline of genomics has arisen, which has contributed to powerful new approaches to identify the structure and functions of genes and their applications in human health, agriculture and the environment. These new discoveries and their commercial applications have helped to promote the biotechnology industry, mainly in North America and Europe. Commercial Applications of Agricultural Biotechnology The greater specificity in the handling of genes since the 1970s has meant that inventors could protect their discoveries by means of patents and other forms of intellectual property rights (IPR).

J. Persley safety), registration of products and public acceptance. The need is urgent, because these are constraints that will intensify as GIOs become an integral part of the research agenda in the region (Sampaio, 2000). , 2000). Costa Rican institutions have developed some innovative partnerships for bioprospecting, which could serve as a model for other countries. In agriculture, pesticide use increased threefold between 1993 and 1996 on crops such as banana, coffee and rice. Much of this pesticide is used to control banana diseases, where pesticide use is a health risk to field workers and an environmental risk to land, water and animals.
