Bangladesh approves more GMO trials

Bangladesh’s national committee on bio-safety has approved field trials of five lines of genetically modified crops, reports domestic news service New Age. The trials are to be conducted on two lines of vitamin A-enriched rice (Golden rice), two lines of potatoes and one line of insect-resistant Bt cotton. The trials are to be carried out over the next two years. Bangladesh commenced the commercial cultivation of GM insect-resistant Bt brinjals (aubergines), the first GM crop to be grown in the country, at the beginning of 2014.
