Kenya: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Kenya’s import ban on genetically engineered (GE) products continues to constrain commerce and trade of agricultural products, preventing local producers, consumers, and industry access to improved products. The Government of Kenya however supports the second planting of Bt. cotton for commercialization, scheduled for the October-November 2020 short rainy season in the eastern and central regions. Bt. Cotton is expected to help revive the national cotton, textile, and apparel sector, a priority under President Kenyatta’s Big Four Agenda.
