R & D priorities in agriculture include new regeneration protocols for rapid multiplication of citrus, coffee, mangrove, vanilla and cardamom. Yield of cardamom has increased 40% using tissuecultured plants. Over the past two decades, Indonesia has placed high priority on biotechnology. The government designated three national biotechnology centres to coordinate R & D in agriculture, medicine and industrial microbiology. Applications of biotechnology in agriculture are primarily the responsibility of the Agency for Agricultural Research and Development (AARD).

These may be direct effects, such as on biodiversity, or indirect, through changing agricultural practices that affect the environment. LMOs released for agricultural purposes may be plants, trees, livestock, fish and/or microorganisms. J. Persley many consumers are seeking further information about the potential effects of biotechnology on their food and their environment. The media have sensed that this is an issue high in public consciousness and are actively promoting widespread debate on how we should best use the discoveries of modern genetics.

An international programme of activities to inform the public debate and policy-making, including a possible international panel to review scientific evidence on the benefits and risks of the applications of new biotechnologies in food. The International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) has initiated a review of the scientific basis of assessing risks and benefits of GM foods, as a contribution to the ongoing debates, nationally and internationally. Environmental risks and benefits of LMOs In regard to the risks and benefits of LMOs in the environment, public concerns are based on the premise that, when LMOs contain genes introduced from outside their normal range of sexual compatibility, these organisms may present new risks to the environment.
