Kenya prepares GMO rules

Kenya is preparing guidelines on the use of genetically modified crops, the national newspaper, Daily Nation, reports. It says that the Ministry of Education and Science’s directorate, the national council for science and technology, will issue information on the potential benefits from the adoption of GMO technology in agriculture. The country has carried out trials on several GM crops, including maize, rice, sorghum and sweet potatoes. Minister of Agriculture William Reto is reported to be confident that lobbying efforts mean “this time the Bill [will be] passed”. Parliament rejected a biosafety bill in October 2006 ( Agrow No 501, p 20). Mr Reto was among government, African Union, and agricultural research representatives who called last month for the adoption of GMOs across Africa (see this issue).
