OFAB Calls for an End to Misleading Information on GM Crops
Tuesday, 2024/02/20 | 08:21:17

The Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology (OFAB) in Nigeria, Africa, demands an end to the persistent spread of false and misleading information on genetically modified (GM) crops from the opposition groups, which includes organic farming advocates, philosophical or religious-based groups, and people driven by political and economic motives.


According to Dr. Rose Gidado, the Director of the Agriculture Biotech Department of the National Biotechnology Development Agency (NABDA), there is an urgent need to address misleading information about GM crops. She emphasized the safety measures taken before the release of GM crops, ensuring safety for human and animal consumption and its impacts on the environment.


Dr. Gidado stressed the significance of biotechnology in agriculture, paving the way for drought-resistant and pest-resistant crops. She urges farmers to adopt biotech crops to reduce reliance on traditional farming practices and methods to ensure higher yields and crop production.
