The term Biotechnology is an increasingly popular concept today, as it is a branch of science with practical applications in many sectors.

Benefits and uses resulting from research are found daily in the markets in the form of improved crops, in pharmaceuticals and in the fight against climate change among other varied utilities.


Biotechnology refers to any technological application that uses biological systems and living organisms or their derivatives to create or modify products or processes for specific uses

Biotechnology is understood as a multidisciplinary area as it uses both biology, chemistry and various processes to provide different uses in areas such as agriculture, pharmacy, food science, forest sciences and medicine.

As a result of this and as a result of research, healthier foods, improved medicines, more resistant or less polluting materials, more productive crops, renewable energy sources and even systems to eliminate pollution are obtained.

In other words, biotechnology is precisely the use of the biological machinery of other living beings for the benefit of human beings. Possibly the first person to use this term was the agricultural engineer.


There are countless applications of this branch of science, but here are the main categories:

Agriculture and livestock: for crop development and crop and food improvement, pest and disease resistance.
Environmental: with applications for bioremediation, pollution resistance, species conservation.
Biosanitary: for obtaining drugs, genetic therapies, obtaining vaccines, monoclonal antibodies and cellular therapies are some examples.
Industrial processes: for cosmetics, food, chemicals, fuels.


Biotechnology can be classified into different types according to its applications:

Red biotechnology: the use of bio-organisms in medicine, such as the creation of antibiotics, culture of bacteria..
White biotechnology: also known as industrial biotechnology, since it is applied to industrial processes.
Green biotechnology: that applied to agricultural processes, for example, to obtain solutions to control diseases and improve crops.
Blue biotechnology: in charge of biotechnological processes related to the sea.
Grey biotechnology: focused exclusively on finding solutions to environmental problems such as climate change.


The research that is carried out in the biotechnological area of crops, focuses on the study of nature and the perfect balance that each plant, microorganism, insect etc. presents in it.

Biotechnology applied to agriculture is a tool that uses living organisms or substances obtained from those organisms to create or modify a product for practical purposes.

One of the best known benefits within this area is pest control.

Through biotechnology applied to agriculture, biopesticides are obtained that have a biological origin, are living organisms or substances synthesized through them. With a high degree of effectiveness, they only attack pests and do not affect other organisms that are beneficial or the fruits of the crops.

In the case of biofertilizers, they are products elaborated from a biological process with the objective of providing nutrients to the crops without altering the natural conditions and maintaining a natural microbiological environment. We work with the aim of helping farmers, looking after the health of the countryside and making crops more profitable and healthy.
