The importance of agrobiotechnology for the less developed countries (LDCs) has been debated for almost two decades. Food security has been a focal issue. However, discussions have been far more expansive and complex. With technological capacity being a centerpiece in development theories, agrobiotechnology has generally been discussed against the broader context of economic growth, social justice, and environmental sustainability. In this special issue of AgBioForum, experts and decision-makers from around the globe address some key questions on the relevance of agrobiotechnology for LDCs.
