Recent biotechnological developments that tackle different crop improvement challenges, including both decreased yield and feed quality with ever increasing impact of different biotic and abiotic stresses, are readily becoming available to imprint lasting positive economic impacts on the cost of crop production and feeding animals.
The challenge in improving digestibility of feed for the benefits of improving growth per unit of fed biomass, which is also shared by the bioethanol industry using lingo-cellulose as feedstock, can be achieved through diversifying feed source.
In this article, where the available biotechnological options and possibilities for use of the genetically engineered plants to stabilize yield and improved feed quality have been reviewed, emphasis has been given on accelerating the use of genome editing tools.
