Plant & Agriculture - Griffith Hack
|Agriculture encompasses a broad range of activities related to the production, processing and use of plants and animals for the production of ornamental vegetation, foods, fibres, fuels and by-products. The agricultural industry is subject to a range of challenges including climate change, food security, bio-security, water scarcity, fossil fuel depletion, changes in consumer demands and low profit margins. It is therefore a fertile breeding ground for innovation in response to these challenges and the protection of the intellectual property in such innovations is often a key component of the success of new innovations. |
Some of the exciting advances that are currently being made in agriculture are in the areas of crops with increased yield or improved nutritional characteristics, abiotic stress tolerance (drought, salt, cold), pest and disease resistance, crops with improved nitrogen utilisation, plants with improved fibre or wood qualities, plant-based biodegradable plastics, industrial chemicals, vaccines or pharmaceuticals, plant-based biofuels, cut flowers with extended vase-life and unusual flower colour, animals that produce milk with improved nutritional content, leaner meat or improved wool-fibre quality, improved feed utilisation, disease resistance or strength and new vaccines and drugs to treat diseases that affect agricultural animals.
