Book on GM Crops` Myths and Facts Released in India
Tuesday, 2015/01/13 | 08:36:15

The Forum of Former Vice Chancellors of Karnataka State Universities (FVCK) and the Association of Biotechnology Led Enterprises Agricultural Group (ABLE-AG) released a new book titled GM Crops: Perception versus Reality written by Dr. T. M. Manjunath and Dr. K. S. Mohan. The authors have more than 40 years of research experience in plant protection and biotechnology.


The book discusses commercial cultivation of GM crops and stresses their importance in effective pest control and better weed management in selected crops, resulting in increased crop production and significant reduction in the use of pesticides. The book addresses common public perceptions around biotechnology by presenting scientific facts and data from authentic and credible sources. The electronic version of the book will be available soon at http://www.agrifocus.org/able-ag/.
