Increasing agricultural productivity is essential to meet the food, fuel, and fiber needs of a growing global population. Only by leveraging technology and innovation can we provide farmers, fishers, foresters, and other producers with the tools they need to improve their productivity, sustainability, and resilience, while reducing agriculture's environmental and climate impacts.
USDA supports the safe and appropriate use of science and technology, including biotechnology, to help meet agricultural challenges and consumer needs of the 21st century. USDA plays a key role in assuring that products produced using biotechnology are safe to be grown and used in the United States. Once these products enter commerce, USDA supports bringing these and other products to the worldwide marketplace. Click here for more biotechnology Information from USDA.
