Plant biochemistry examines the molecular mechanisms of plant life. One of the main topics is photosynthesis, which in higher plants takes place mainly in the leaves. Plants are the source of important industrial raw material such as fat and starch, but they are also the basis for the production of pharmaceutics. It is to be expected that in future gene technology will lead to the extensive use of plants as a means of producing sustainable raw material for industrial purposes. Plant agricultural production is the basis for human nutrition. Plant gene technology, which can be observed as a section of plant biochemistry, makes a contribution to combat the impending global food shortage due to the enormous growth of the world population. The use of environmentally compatible herbicides and protection against viral or fungal infestation by means of gene technology is of great economic importance. Plant biochemistry is also instrumental in breeding productive varieties of crop plants.
