The potential for growth is large, particularly when combined with the rapid emergence of a biofuels–chemicals production industry. Chapter 2, on new biotechnology, gives an overview of how advances in the biosciences have impacted the practice of biotechnology and the growth of the industry. Submerged Fermentations Are the Industry’s Bioprocessing Cornerstone Submerged fermentations represent a technology in which microorganisms are grown in large agitated tanks filled with liquid fermentation media consisting of sugar, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.

Approximately 40% of the Bollguard-planted fields1 had to be sprayed, although only one to two pesticide applications were required compared with a more typical four to five. Cotton growers reported an average 7% improvement in yield, as well as reducing or avoiding the use of pesticides. The farmers reported a $33/acre cost advantage of Bollguard cotton compared with insecticide-treated non-Bollguard cotton, after accounting for the technology licensing fee of $32/acre and supplemental pesticide 1 Approximately 3% of Texas’ 3 million acres of cotton and 60–70% of Alabama’s 500,000 acres of cotton were planted with B.
