Plant Biotechnology and Tissue Culture

The selection of methods and developments that are applied for the growth of  plant organs, cells, tissues in a nutrient medium under optimal sterile conditions is named as plant tissue culture and the utilisation of these living organisms and also other biological products for the manufacturing and production of the drugs is termed as biotechnology. A hard beginning for the rapid development and enactment of biotechnology in agriculture was provided by achievements in plant tissue culture.

The global market for agricultural biotechnology reached $29.2 billion in 2016. This should reach $32.1 billion in 2017 and $53.7 billion in 2022, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.8%.
