Green biotechnology is biotechnology applied to agricultural processes. An example would be the selection and domestication of plants via micro-propagation. Another example is the designing of transgenic plants to grow under specific environmental conditions or in the presence (or absence) of certain agricultural chemicals. One hope is that green biotechnology might produce more environmentally friendly solutions than traditional industrial agriculture. An example of this is the engineering of a plant to express a pesticide, thereby eliminating the need for external application of pesticides. An example of this would be Bt corn hether or not green biotechnology products such as this are ultimately more environmentally friendly is a topic of considerable debate.
