Egypt to turn to agricultural biotechnology

Egyptian Minister of Agriculture Dr Saleh Farag has labelled biotechnology’s role as important in the promotion of the country’s revolutionary change, the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA) reports. The new Minister says that one of the key predicaments the country confronts is water shortage, and that the “problem can be overcome through the use of biotech plants”.
