Special USDA Technology Report

At the Ministerial Conference and Expo on Agricultural Science and Technology in 2003, Agriculture Secretary Ann M. Veneman released a special report titled 21st Century Agriculture: A Critical Role for Science and Technology. It showcases a broad range of conventional and emerging technologies that can increase agricultural productivity, enhance the nutrient content of foods, and offer new capabilities and options in food and agriculture production and marketing.

As an innovation for future, bio-nanotechnology may give molecular biologists even greater opportunities to investigate the physiological functions of plants and animals, which can increase the speed and power of disease diagnosis, according to the report.
