Biotechnology in Agriculture

Agricultural biotechnology is a collection of scientific techniques used to improve plants, animals and micro-organisms. Advances in plant biology were being applied to breed more productive and robust crops. Farmers increased water and fertilizer applications to realize the full potential of high yield varieties. Mechanization reduced the labour requirements of many agricultural processes, such as planting and harvesting. Under saffron network focus is on developing a tissue culture protocol for corm production of desired size, develop in vitro micro plants for cormlet production and develop complete agro-technology for use of cormlets of small size, characterization of microflora of rhizosphere associated with Saffron crop to develop consortia of beneficial microbes, for genetic improvement of Saffron and functional genomics approaches in understanding the regulation of synthesis and accumulation of apocarotenoids.
