Kenya: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Bt corn and Bt cotton will likely be the first ever genetically modified crops to be cultivated in Kenya if the National Biosafety Authority (NBA) approves applications submitted for open field cultivation (environmental release). Submission of the first-ever open field cultivation applications is a major milestone for Kenya’s agricultural biotechnology development, and a test of commitment to the existing regulatory framework. Genetically engineered (GE) products development has not previously moved beyond the confined field trials (CFT) stage.
