Kenya: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The first planting of Bt. Cotton for commercialization in Kenya is planned for the start of the long rains season, which is expected in March or April 2020. Bt. Cotton is expected to help revive the nation’s cotton and textile sector, which is a priority under the President’s Big Four Agenda and, specifically, the Manufacturing and Food Security pillars. The import ban on genetically engineered (GE) products remains, denying many Kenyan producers and industry access to the best available science, limiting genetic engineering technology adoption and acceptance, and severely and unduly restricting commerce, trade, and regional food assistance.
