GPS
  • Map fields to:
    • Improve product quality
    • Using chemicals more efficiently
    • Increase production efficiency
    • Conserve energy
    • Protect soil and groundwater
genetic engineering
Genetic engineering
  • Inserting a specific gene into the chromosome of an organism to develop a desired trait in the recipient organism
  • Genetic Engineering in California Agriculture – YouTube
  • Genetically Modified Foods: Potentially Dangerous - YouTube
genetic engineering1
Genetic engineering
  • Transform a single gene
    • Faster production of new varieties
  • Transfer to a totally unrelated plant
  • Make hybrids from plants that cannot be cross-pollinated
  • Produce disease-resistant plants
  • Produce plants that are toxic to insects
  • Produce crops that are tolerant of herbicides
cloning
Cloning
  • Creating genetically identical plants
  • What Are the Advantages of Cloning in Agriculture? | eHow.com

  • Top 15 Famous Animal Clonings! - YouTube
gender selection
Gender selection
  • Why?
    • Dairy farmers female for herd replacement
    • Beef farmers male for faster gain and better prices
    • Some fish female is better quality meat
production hormones
Production hormones
  • rbST in American Dairies - Bovine Growth Hormone – YouTube
  • Beef-animal growth hormone for faster weight gain
    • In feed
    • Just under the skin
  • Porcine somatotropin(PST)-enhance muscle growth in young pigs
