Genetic modification (GM), also called genetic engineering (GE), is a technology where new traits are introduced into an organism by directly manipulating its genetic makeup. For instance, Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), is introduced or manipulated through intervention at the molecular level using biotechnology. In the process of this technology, scientists manipulate the characteristics of plants and animals by introducing DNA fragments, whole genes, or long stretches of DNA segments from different organisms. Scientists can also remove or exchange sequences of DNA in organisms or introduce genetic material to silent genes. GM seeds have a larger shelf life and pest resistance as compared to the conventional or non-GM seeds.

The analysts forecast global genetically modified (GM) seeds market to grow at a CAGR of 9.83% during the period 2016-2020.
