Abstract

Development and utilisation of biotechnology in Zambia is limited because of lack of trained manpower, inadequate research facilities, and high investment costs. Nevertheless, biotechnology is being used in the domestication and utilisation of wild fruits, and development of biofertilizers. There are also biotechnology projects to modernize and improve the nutritional qualities of local foods and beverages. In the animal sector, artificial insemination is being used to improve indigenous cattle, and an embryo transfer project is being supported by Australia. Vaccines are also being developed against haemorrhagic septicaemia, blackleg, anthrax and brucellosis.
