It allows selected individual genes to be transferred from one organism into another and between nonrelated species. Foods produced from or using GM organisms are often referred to as GM foods. For the benefits, first of all, the genetically modified crops are more productive and have a larger yield. According to the Office of Science at the U.S. Department of Energy, genetically modified crops is a better taste, increased nutrients and resistance to disease and pests, and faster output of crops. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations also says that farmers can grow more food on less land with
In spite of major challenges such as increasing labour costs, degrading environment, low selling price and much more, farmers are willing to try new methods. One such recent development in the field of agriculture is making use of Precision methods. Precision agriculture is a modern farming practice that enables farmers to work better with the soil saving the additional effort. Rotating crops have been proven to
One of the common claims is “The world needs more GMOs.” I support the claim that the world needs more GMOs because they are beneficial to human beings in different aspects. Firstly, the use of GMOs can help to increase yield in order to feed on more population. The world population is blooming. The current world population is 7.2
These genetically modified (GM) crops can also be found to provide more nutritional value to people as desirable genes can be added to crops and those people who eat these specific foods will receive more nutritional value than usual from the food and therefore can aid to alleviate malnourishment. GM crops can be grown on smaller spaces of land, decreasing the pressure placed on the limited space the world has for crops which is already a problem. GM foods can be more environmentally friendly as they require less herbicides and pesticides. Even though there are advantages there are multiple disadvantages which make the decision difficult. They are found to be dangerous to insects which don’t feed on the crops but that are equally important as they play roles in our ecosystem.
Cloning of insulin is done by inserting the DNA of insulin in specific place in Bacteria (plasmid: DNA throat, there is independent of the DNA in the bacterial chromosome and double independently of the bacterial chromosome) which duplicates very quickly so a high amount of insulin is produced .Another point to add about cloning is According to mark (2007) cloning can save many animals from extinction by conserving the DNA and the egg or sperm and cloning it again. According to David(2004) cloning can increase the production of animals and plants to provide more food to cover all the needs around the world and to avoid famines. So scientists tend to use cloning to increase the production of plants and animals. A successful example of the first cloned animals was the sheep “Dolly” this process happened in 1996.Tt was the first
This entails that there should be more nutrients added into cheaper foods. As a result, people in poorer countries who can not afford foods that are high in nutrients, would be able to buy foods that are cheaper but still have a sufficient amount of nutrients. The foods that the poor have to eat and buy now are very low in nutrients. This is why many poor people in developing nations develop malnutrition. Finally the fifth solution is research and development to increase crop yields.
As we consume food to survive. And it directly affects our health and our body. So the reduce of food or the hunger problem was one of the serious challenges that faced scientists in our world. Scientists try to solve this problem by genetic modification food (GMF). By using the scientific development of
Genetic modification is a controversial field of science. Advantages 1. GMO’s allow farmers to increase profits using less resources eg. herbicides 2. Increases the affordability of many foods feeding more mouths and contributing to the goal of beating world hunger 3.
Just by gaining knowledge on how far apart to space seeds or how wide to dig a trench will make a dramatic improvement in productivity. Learning about crop rotation, which keeps the soil from being depleted can make a difference for millions of farmers. Investing in farmer education programs will help farmers grow more food and earn more money. Knowledge on when to plant and harvest during the year can make a difference between growing just enough for survival and growing enough for selling. As a result not only will the number of people suffering from severe malnutrition decrease, but farmers will be able to sell more of their crops and earn extra money.
Introduction Everyone wants good quality of food to consume but the greed of people to grow the crops faster and consume them could be disastrous on them . In the modern world the use of chemical fertilisers has increased ever than before. Chemical fertilisers have boosted the agricultural activity since the Green Revolution took place, worldwide in 1960s. So now the chemical fertilisers have started showing the effect on people’s health and it’s now the right time to switch to organic farming as this method farming is a lot safer than adding chemical fertilisers in soil, the quality of the soil depreciates as you keep on adding these fertilisers. I chose this topic because I feel that the agriculture industry is booming and with that the use of chemical fertilisers also growing but these are harmful for people’s health and they cause destruction to nature also.
