Filipino farmers fight misinformation on GMOs

A surprising number of Filipino farmers have decided in favor of the new technology of genetic modification.

The farmers’ experiences with biotech crops are documented in two recently published monographs, launched on February 6 at the Dusit Thani Hotel, Manila. The publications were published by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA) and Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA), in collaboration with Agricultural Biotechnology Support Project II (ABSPII) and the John Templeton Foundation.
ISAAA and SEARCA hope that these publications will increase public awareness about biotechnology, and clear up misconceptions by featuring the very farmers who chose to plant biotech crops in their own fields.
