Biotechnology has indeed done a lot of good things for the world, vice versa it also has some disadvantages, in agriculture the Transgenic plants are produced by introducing some genetic traits into the gene of the plant , There are also concerns that genetic engineering of crops would reduce their long-term biological potential. The yield of such crops is typically higher than those of conventional crops. Yet there are concerns that overproduction due to transgenic crops may result in effects such as market instability and it leads to impact on production and global Market, Impact on nature, Biodiversity and the ecosystem, There are risks of transferring toxins from one life form to another, creating new toxins or of transferring allergenic compounds from one species to another, which could result in unexpected allergic reactions so it causes various Impacts on Health also.
