Educational cartoon on GMOs launched

A 60-page educational cartoon featuring two characters representing genetically modified insect-resistant maize and cotton has been released by the Indian chapter of the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA). The aim is to disseminate information about GM crops, their rapid adoption and impact on farmers and consumers, and their contribution to sustainable agriculture. It attempts to tackle the “growing volume of scientifically un-validated and misleading information in the popular media” and its potential to negatively influence policy makers in developing countries. “Sharing knowledge with young people about the new technologies of the 21st century, such as biotech crops, is vital, because they will be the decision-makers of tomorrow,” says ISAAA chairman Dr Clive James.
