Plant biotechnology is set of different scientific approaches and methods that are utilized to improve and modify plants for human and environmental benefit. Plant biotechnology can be used to meet the increasing need for food by improving yields, improving the nutritional quality of crops and recuing the impact on the environment. Plant biotechnology can assist to creation of varieties resistant to frost, droughts and floods, pests and disease, and other abiotic and biotic stresses. Similarly, development of plant biotechnology methods is a reach source of possibilities for creation of new agricultural genotypes, thus enriching the agricultural biodiversity.
This paper presents several in vitro methods with successful application results and particular concern for improvement of the biodiversity of horticultural crops, important for Republic of Macedonia. Utilization of the benefits of plant biotechnology will bring “economically sustainable” and “environmentally sound” agricultural production that shall be “socially equal”. It is a straight contribution of plant biotechnology to the sustainable agriculture.
