Kenya: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Bt. cotton will likely be the first commercially approved genetically engineered (GE) crop for cultivation in Kenya. The Kenyan government’s priority to revive its cotton and textile sector under the President’s Big Four Agenda that supports the manufacturing and food security pillars, favors Bt. cotton’s early release into the market. The import ban on GE products remains, limiting GE technology adoption and acceptance, severely and unduly restricting exports and food aid assistance.
