Indian GM (genetically modified) aubergine due in 2009

Genetically modified insect-resistant Bt aubergines are expected to be commercially available in India in 2009, says the US Cornell University. It has been involved in the development of the aubergines for a number of Asian countries with support from the US-funded Agricultural Biotechnology Support Project II (Agrow No 479, p 19). One of the Indian partners in the project, Maharashtra Hybrid Seed Co (Mahyco), gained clearance in August to carry out large-scale field trials in India (Agrow No 526, p 19). The aubergines are resistant to fruit and shoot borers (Leucinodes orbonalis).
