Progress is the main benefit that biotechnology can provide. Early pioneers in this field used information on several plant species to create interbreeding opportunities to improve the yield, flavor, size and color of their crops. Today's biotechnology specialists are doing the same, but on a much larger scale thanks to the technological improvements of the 20th and 21st centuries. In this blog post, we'll discuss what biotechnology is, the advantages and disadvantages of biotechnology.

Therefore, creating healthier foods can reduce health problems related to lack of nutrients and increase food availability.
