 Q.1 GM crops have great potential in overall development of Indian agriculture. Comment?

.Ans: Genetically modified (GM) foods are foods derived from organisms whose genetic material (DNA) has been modified in a way that does not occur naturally, e.g., through the introduction of a gene from a different organism.

Significance of GM crops in the development of Agriculture 

● Increased Agricultural yield: With a lower cost and lower labor input, it has resulted in an increase in productivity and a decrease in cultivation costs.

● GM crops have the potential to increase farmer's income.

● Tolerance against herbicides and weedicides: GM crops are designed to provide better crop security by introducing resistance to plant diseases caused by insects or viruses, as well as increased tolerance to herbicides.

● Climate resilient: GM crops are more resistant to a variety of extreme environmental conditions, such as cold, heat, drought, salt, and so on.

● Reduced waste and cheaper food costs for the consumer due to improved processing features.

● GM crops can help us in solving the food security issues. In the past 15 years, biotechnology has aided farmers worldwide in producing 311.8 million tonnes more food.

Thus, Genetically modified foods offer a great deal of promise to lower costs, end poverty, stop hunger and malnutrition, and boost innovative abilities.
