Philippines OKs GM aubergine trials

Field trials of genetically modified insect-resistant Bt aubergines have been approved at two locations in the Philippines. One is to be conducted in the city of Bay by the University of the Philippines (Los Baños). The other is in the town of Kabacan and will be conducted by the University of Southern Mindanao, reports Philippine newswire Inquirer News. Trials being carried out in Bay were destroyed by vandals in February ( Agrow No 611, p 27), while trials in the city of Mindanao were uprooted in December on the orders of the city mayor over an administrative dispute ( Agrow No 607, p 22).
