Ethiopia: Ethiopia Approves Biotech Cotton

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

In May, the Ethiopian Ministry of Environment approved Bt cotton – the country’s first biotech crop – for cultivation. Planting is expected to start next year since the seed is not expected to be available in time for the current growing season. At the same time, the Environment Ministry has authorized confined field trials for drought-tolerant and insect-resistant maize.
