Ghana has started the field trail of planting some Genetically Modified (GM) seeds at Nnoboam, near Konongo in the Ashanti region and Savanna Agricultural Research Institute (SARI) of Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) premises.
Ghana adopted three main varieties of seeds to be tried at specific locations across the country. The three seeds which were imported into the country are Bt Rice, Bt Cowpea and Bt Cotton.
Professor Walter S. Alhassan, a member of National Biosafety Committee (NBC) said this in an interview that the committee took the delivery of the seeds and handed them over to SARI and the breeders in charge of the field trails.
