AgBioWorld is devoted to bringing information about technological advances in agriculture to the developing world. Our members include scientists, physicians, professors and others who believe that recent developments in plant science, such as biotechnology, can and should be used to increase crop yields, grow more nutritious plants and reduce dependence on chemicals in order to alleviate hunger and to help preserve the environment. Many of them communicate on a daily basis through the AgBioView E-mail Newsletter.
