Using biotechnology with sustainable agriculture effectively contributes to gains in agricultural productivity Agricultural biotechnology, also referred to as green biotechnology, is biotechnology applied to agricultural processes.

A distinction is made between: (1) programmes for plant biotechnology; (2) programmes for livestock biotechnology; (3) regional biotechnology networks for specific crops or In India, our agricultural partnerships were historically focused on developing and disseminating productivity-enhancing technologies with international and, to a lesser extent, local partners.

While we have continued to build on this, sinceour approach has moved towards adapting solutions that respond to national and state-level demand "the book is a valuable resource as it provides much information about biotechnology development in developing countries.

Such information can foster collaboration not only among developing and countries in economic transition, but also between them and industrialized countries".
