How has biotechnology helped to improve the agricultural industry?
A
by developing irrigation systems that cover a large land area
B
by creating some crops that resist certain insects
C
by producing soil free of decomposers
D
by developing machines that help farmers harvest crops faster
Explanation: 

Detailed explanation-1: -They are pest-resistant and therefore less dependent on chemical pesticides. Genetically Modified crops help to reduce post-harvest losses. They help to increase the mineral usage by plants, thereby preventing early exhaustion of soil fertility. Genetically modified crops have enhanced nutritional value.

Detailed explanation-2: -Biotech crops can make farming more profitable by increasing crop quality and may in some cases increase yields. The use of some of these crops can simplify work and improve safety for farmers. This allows farmers to spend less of their time managing their crops and more time on other profitable activities.

Detailed explanation-3: -With biotechnology, high-yielding variety grains can be formulated that would be resistant to changing climatic conditions and they also show resistance to pests and insects. All of these can lead to an increase in the productivity of outputs.

Detailed explanation-4: -Biotechnology in agricultural practices Within agriculture, the principal goal of modern biotechnology is to improve the quality, quantity, nutrition, taste, and shelf life of produce, ultimately enabling stakeholders to obtain greater yield with reduced energetic costs.

Detailed explanation-5: -Bio-fertilizers and Bio-pesticides are eco-friendly sources for agriculture, which contains the living microorganisms that help in promoting growth by increasing the supply or availability of primary nutrients. Farmers choose biotech crops to increase the yield and in lower production costs.
