The many uses of biotechnology in agriculture and food are examined in this review. The impact of various biotechnology techniques on improvement of crops, food safety, environmentally friendly agricultural practices, and sustainability is examined. This study underscores the crucial significance of biotechnology in augmenting agricultural productivity, guaranteeing food security, and advancing sustainable development by scrutinising contemporary research and commercial practices. It talks about agricultural precision, bioremediation, genetic engineering, and other cutting-edge methods influencing the future of agricultural production. Through the synthesis of significant discoveries and trends, this study provides an understanding of the potential and problems related to the combining bioengineering in the food and farming sectors. The significance of conscientious biotechnology innovation in tackling worldwide food security issues and promoting sustainable farming methods is ultimately highlighted.
