Togo passes GMO biosafety legislation

The west African state, Togo, has approved biosafety legislation for the planting of genetically modified crops, the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA) says. Its major cash crop is cotton, the ISAAA adds. Togo borders Burkina Faso, which started planting GM cotton last year ( Agrow No 550, p 21). The legislation follows the passing of similar rules in Kenya and Mali ( Agrow No 559, p 21). Other African countries to have adopted biosafety laws on GMOs are Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Malawi, Mauritius, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
