How are transgenic plants different from hybrid plants and what is their relevance in modern agriculture?


Transgenic Plants are genetic engineered plants or off spring of them. They usually contain material from at least one unrelated organism as from virus animal, or other plant. They are produced to include better qualities of such other organism. Combination of qualities of different organism is seen in the transgenic plants.

Hybrid plants are off-spring of two genetically unlike parents. They show qualities of two or more different types of plants combined by hybrisation. It may be generally by cross pollination.

These plants will help to increase food production of good quality; They are drought resistible, immune from pest-insects and various diseases. They can tolerate high temperature, rain, humidity and other adverse weather conditions due to qualities acquired by such transgenic process.
