Poultry producers have appealed to the Agricultural Marketing Authority to review the ban on the imports of genetically modified maize saying it was severely affecting the industry. The producers said the cost of production has increased due to the shortage of grain. It now costs up to US$400 to import a tonne of maize up from between US$120 and US$150 per tonne.
