Plant biotechnology

Share job area: 

Biotechnology is used in many ways in the agriculture and horiticulture industries.  Orchids have become a common site in many grocery stores because they can be grown on a large scale through biotechnology methods such as tissue culture.  Other plants are rapidly increasing production of food products such as corn and wheat because biotechnology methods have improved crop screening and seed development. 

Plants can also be genetically engineered to improve their resistance to disease and ability to tolerate conditions such as cold and drought.
