Ghana Approves GM Crops Field Trials
Saturday, 2013/07/27 | 21:48:25

riceThe National Government of Ghana has approved four crops to undergo GMO confined field trials (CFTs). According to Eric Amaning Okoree, Director of Ghana's Ministry of Environment, Science, and Technology, genetically modified (GM) crops including rice, sweet potato, cotton, and cowpea have so far been approved for CFTs.

 

On December 31, 2011, Ghana's Biosafety Bill-a legislation that will enable Ghana to allow the application of biotechnology in food crop production involving GM organisms, was given Presidential assent to become law, after it has been in Parliament for four years.
