The increase in human population carries with it the need for for increased and more efficient food production. Biology has played a significant role on the improvement of food production in agriculture. Some of the example are:
- Farmers used to plant crops traditionally using conventional tools. With the advancement of biology and technology, they now can plant crops in many different cultivation ground along with more efficient cultivation methods
- Through the development of biotechnology and molecular biology, plant have been genetically engineered to produce their own pesticide. So they no longer need to be spayed manually. Among those plants are apples, pear, cabbage, broccoli, and potatoes.
- Plants can be propagated quickly and in large quantity by tissue culture technique. The example are palm trees, orchids, bananas, and carrots
- Genetic Engineering has produced seedless fruits such as watermelon, papaya, orange and grape.
