Biotechnology developments

Man has improved plants and animals biotechnologically for centuries, mainly through the selection of livestock and seed from plants with desirable traits and their reproduction and breeding. These efforts have significantly increased productivity. In more recent times, biotechnological change has accelerated with the use of modern bioengineering techniques. Results have included the doubling of corn and wheat yields over the past 40 to 50 years, substantial increases in milk output per cow, and the breeding of pigs with leaner meat.
