Increased Crop Yield
By genetically engineering crops to have higher yields, scarce land is efficiently utilised. Additionally, crops can be modified to better survive in harsher conditions, such as in deserts, opening up a range of possibilities for new farming land.
With the appropriate development of supply chains and logistic operations, genetic engineering is the key to opening a whole new world of possibilities that hold the potential to solve the pressing problem of world hunger.
Delivery Methods For Vaccines
Widespread distribution of vaccines could be achieved by modifying plants to produce vaccines. These vaccines could then be distributed widely by selling the crops.
In India, for example, vaccines are distributed in bananas, which are usually eaten uncooked, thus ensuring the proper delivery of the vaccine.
In addition, genetically modified rice, otherwise known as "golden rice", has a higher level of Vitamin A. This is essential for healthy nutrition, but is often deficient in Third-World countries. By incorporating of these nutrients into everyday food, better nutrition to be achieved without the use of expensive vitamin supplements or vaccination programs.
