Biotechnology in the semi-arid tropics potential for improving agricultural production through biotechnology in the semi-arid tropics uri icon

abstract

  • This review provides an update about biotechnology research for the genetic enhancement of the mostimportant crops grown by farmers in the semi-arid tropics. Advances in biotechnology applications todevelop new crop cultivars with improved yield, drought tolerance, and pest resistance are also given inthis article. This review also discusses examples of both national private and public sector in promotingnew crop cultivars ensuing from applications of genetic research
