The growth of biotechnology in the agricultural field has incredible possibilities. These possibilities include, the creation of new jobs, new fruits and better fruits that can resist disease and pest without the use of dangerous chemicals and poisons. These are all happening right now and will continue to grow and refine as the technology becomes increasingly useful.

The development of genetically modified foods and other agricultural biotechnology products has generated significant public debate. The potential for creating foods enhanced for health benefits or increasing crop yields is tantalizing, but there was also widespread concern about the technology’s health and environmental risks. These concerns may hinder the progress of the field, but the possible rewards for such research push it forward.
