Abstract: Biotechnology can improve the condition of Thar desert if it is coupled with soil, water and climate. The soil of arid zone is generally sandy and barren due to scarcity of water and rain. Bioresources of this area are badly affected by the scarce rain and regular drought. Due to these reasons, Meteorological Department declared 2002 as all India drought year. This year, 64% less rain was recorded in Rajasthan than the earlier years. Whereb West Rajasthan was badly affected out of this, the bioresources of this area faced enormous losses as a result of this condition. The condition of environment, crops and trees can be improved by scientific researches in this area and they can be saved. The biologists of CAZRI are doing a lot in this direction and it is hoped that Rajasthan once again would be fertile and full of bioresources.
