Some additional beneficial characters are incorporated in improved varities of plants, using biotechnology to develop transgenic crops. By the year 2050, the world population will reach 9.8 billion. Food production would have to satisfy the needs of such enormous numbers of people. During recent decades better and improved crops are being produced using genetic engineering. Through the use of transgenics, one can produce plants with desired traits and even increased yields. The transgenics would allow for more crops that last longer and withstand pests and diseases. Transgenic plant production will allow us to feed the growing population and to produce more desirable products. The future of transgenic crops remains a vital debate, as its applications have several advantages and disadvantages.
