 en Objectives and Needs for Agricultural Biotechnology: Biosafety and International Collaboration
Cohen, J.I. & Komen, J.


To derive benefits from biotechnology, research should relate to development needs and offer practical benefits. For Africa, research should focus on improving the quality and standard of agriculture, increasing yield stability, and ensuring sustainable productivity. The desired benefits of biotechnology will only be possible if conventional agricultural research foundations are capable of translating laboratory findings into field applications. This requires that biosafety regulatory structures be put in place.
