Major and interesting adjustments have taken position lately in a number of points of bio know-how and its functions to forestry. much more intriguing is the chance of significant suggestions that the total box of biotechnology holds for plant development often. the significance of those advancements for the forestry zone is huge, particu larly considering forestry technology has no longer got the types of technical and R&D inputs that, say, agriculture has obtained some time past few a long time. Y ct the issues of defor estation in addition to stagnation in yields and productiveness of present forests during the global have gotten more and more obvious, with effects and ecological ef fects that reason becoming all over the world situation. regulations for software of present knowl part in biotechnology to the sector of forestry and priorities for destiny examine and improvement are, consequently, of substantial worth, since it is just throughout the adop tion of definitely the right priorities and enlightened regulations that clinical advancements will stream alongside the fitting course, resulting in advancements in forestry practices via out the area. It was once by contrast backdrop that the Tata power learn Institute (TERI) or ganised a massive foreign workshop at the "Applications of Biotechnology in For estry and Horticulture" at New Delhi in January 1988. the current quantity covers the lawsuits of this foreign workshop.

Agroforestry practised on a sustainable basis would ultimately relieve pressure on natural forests and thereby help in forest conservation. Industrial Forestry Here, the objective is to meet the needs of timber, pulpwood and fiber. It is a commercial venture based on wood quality and input-output considerations. The objective has to be tree-crop agriculture. The immediate clients are wood-based industries. Industrial forestry has to be related to land use and end-use considerations. Since these are commercial ventures, production and productivity are chief considerations, and if warranted on other grounds, fast growing exotics are most welcome.
The earlier we realise and practise this, the better it is for our longrange ecological security. As indicated above, if the country wishes to plan for self-sufficiency in matters of timber needs for diverse uses (Tables 2 and 3), we need to plant about 309 Mha of land. , billions and trillions of saplings would be needed; second, in view of the competing land resources, the country does not have so much land available for forestry. Therefore, there is a need to go vertical and raise plantations based on high-yielding quality materials which, once identified, can be multiplied on a large scale through the application of tissue culture technology and/or clonal propagation, among other options.
An instance of mismatch between end-use and the ideotype is found in the eucalyptus cultivated in India. The ideotype characteristics of this species are suitable to meet the requirements for timber or pulpwood rather than for firewood, although for the latter, even a timber species can be chopped and used for energy generation. The latter would be a waste of valuable biomass. To grow eucalyptus for firewood under social forestry programs in India is basically a wrong end-use, and it is no wonder that eucalyptus biomass has, therefore, found an outlet for use as timber and pulpwood.
