Nigeria: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

In April 2015, Nigeria signed its biosafety bill and established the National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA). NBMA functions to regulate the law and provide oversight for utilizing and commercializing biotechnology products for Nigeria’s food security. These four genetically-engineered crops are under development and will likely be commercialized within the next five years: Bt Cowpea, Bt Cotton, Africa Bio-fortified Sorghum and Nitrogen Use Efficient, and Water Use Efficient and Salt Tolerant (NEWEST) Rice.
