Plant Biotechnology
 Manipulating plants for the benefit of mankind
 A precise process to improve plants.

Plant biotechnology is about:
More Food
Better Food
Better environment

and introduction of new genes.  Systematic procedures used to improve trait phenotypes by crossing and selection. directed manipulation of the genotype at the DNA sequence level. Why plant breeding needs plant biotechnology? Breeding:  Application of genetics principles for improvement  Combining desirable traits from different varieties of plants to produce plants of superior quality. 2015 Pemuliaan Tanaman 2015 3 . November 25.

Planting material is the most important input in agriculture An improved cultivar is the most economic and least laborious input for crop cultivation November 25. 2015 Pemuliaan Tanaman 2015 4 . It suggests about a 50-50 of crop yield split between genetic gain and gain attributed to management. Importance of plant breeding? Agriculture is the biggest industrial sector in the world Increases in yield are derived both from improved varieties and from improved management.
