Agricultural biotechnology allows us to improve crops in targeted ways, including resistance to pests and diseases, better stress tolerance, or enhanced nutritional profiles. Agricultural biotechnology in the form of genetically modified crops saw widespread adoption in 1995 – 25 years ago. Since then, there have been many notable developments in agricultural biotech – from new GM varieties to completely new techniques like genome editing. Today, genome editing allows us to target plants in increasingly precise ways.
