As interdisciplinary series on the application of modern biotechnological approaches to agriculture, forestry, and industry, Biotechnology in Agriculture and Forestry fills the need for a common meeting ground for researchers from diverse fields of plant science. It was published in the Commonwealth Forestry Review 66(4). The following points highlight the four main applications of biotechnology in agriculture:- 1. The document focuses on the development and application of modern biotechnology which is based on the use of new enabling techniques of recombinant-DNA technology, often referred to as "genetic engineering". Even more exciting is the prospect of major innovations that the entire field of biotechnology holds for plant growth in general. These authoritative volumes link basic and applied research, providing literature and the information on plant tissue culture, genetic engineering, molecular biology, plant breeding and horticulture. International experts describe the improvement of existing strains and the development of new ones from test tube to field and industry. The stage of development of all these techniques and their current economic application to forest trees varies between species but the potential is high.

Land is the most fundamental resource of a country and as a result of the high rate of population growth in India, the pressure to produce more food, fodder, timber and fuelwood from the available land is intense. The major effects of recent biotechnological developments will be seen in: (i) enhancing the planting and survival of trees on sites that are naturally difficult environmentally, degraded by poor husbandry or previously unused for forestry; (ii) increasing the yields of both traditional and new products; (iii) increasing the transfer and use of disease-free stock; (iv) improving the yield of wood-based products by efficient conversion processes including the use of micro organisms; and (v) facilitating the identification and conservation of genetic resources. 4:217,730, Washington D.C, USA.
