        The attempts to export the failed Green Revolution to Latin America, Africa and Asia confirm the thesis that the BMGF is completely disinterested in the development of new sustainable and inclusive economic models but rather in the consolidation of the intensive industrial monoculture model to the benefit of large-scale seed and agrochemical industries.

The book contents includes the universal laws of preservation in nature, the concept of continuous-discrete properties of matter, the foundations of. Biotechnology’s greatest contribution is in agriculture – in making crops more efficient.

Resource recovery, recycling and hazardous-waste disposal are other environmentally beneficial facets of biotechnology. Thus, biotechnology is a pivotal tool for sustainable development, which has become a priority for the world’s policy makers.

This Book Looks At The Application Of A Variety Of Biotechnologies To Agricultural Development. This book contains current knowledge of plant and soil microbiomes for sustainable agriculture and environments, which included the biodiversity soil microbes linked with plants (rhizospheric, endophytic, and epiphytic); and have biotechnological applications in agriculture, environments, industry, and pharmaceutical for sustainable developments.

Agriculture is the largest contributor to biodiversity loss with expanding impacts due to changing consumption patterns and growing populations. Agriculture destroys biodiversity by converting natural habitats to intensely managed systems and by releasing pollutants, including greenhouses gases.

Biodiversity and ecosystems feature prominently across many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and associated targets. They contribute directly to human well-being and development priorities. Biodiversity is biotechnology the centre of many economic activities, particularly those related to crop and livestock agriculture, forestry, and fisheries.

Maheshwari (Editor) ISBN Biodiversity is the benchmark for agricultural indexes as very important element for agriculture organic development, one of the risk factors due to the huge loss of its characteristics.

For these reasons, the attention to biodiversity is one of the basic things for environment and agriculture organic development. Intensive resource exploitation due to social and economic factors has led to the destruction, conversion or degradation of ecosystems.

Reversing these trends requires time to time assessment to integrate conservation and nable Development and Biodiversity: Biotechnology and Biodiversity (Hardcover). Monoculture is the agricultural practice of growing a single crop, plant, or livestock species, variety, or breed in a field or farming system at a time.

Polyculture, where more than one crop species is grown in the same space at the same time, is the alternative to monoculture. Monoculture is widely used both in industrial farming and in organic farming. Sustainable Development. Sustainable Development Impact Summit.
