Bio-nanotechnology Will Help India's Food Security: Pawar

Abstract:
2007 Advances in the area of bio-nanotechnology would go a long way in helping India's food security, Minister for Food and Agriculture Sharad Pawar said here Wednesday.

'Bio-nanotechnology takes agriculture from the era of genetically modified (GM) crops to the brave new world of atomically modified organisms,' Pawar said, speaking at the inaugural session of the three-day Fifth Knowledge Millennium Summit on 'B2B Bio and Nanotechnology' organised by industry body Assocham.

Taking wheat production as an example, he said: 'Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and parts of Uttaranchal and Gujarat produce wheat. And these states have to cater to the demands of the entire country.

'That is the problem with food security. This is where bio-nanotechnology can help us', biotechnology by boosting crop output, while nanotechnology helped in crop protection.
