Food: How the IAEA is Contributing
In agriculture and food security, nuclear techniques are used to breed improved crops, enhance livestock reproduction and nutrition, and control animal and plant pests and diseases. Higher and more reliable yields improve farmer’s livelihoods, and better quality and safer food is available for consumers. Isotopic techniques are applied for better soil and water management.
