Agricultural Research Organisation prepares to test genetically-modified cotton

The National Environment Management Authority has issued a 30-day deadline for oral or written submission which will bar or allow Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation (KARLO) to proceed with trials in nine research stations across the country.

Karlo is proposing to undertake national performance trials for Bt-cotton at Mwea, Katumani, Kampi ya Mawe, Bura, Perkera, Kibos, Alupe, Kerio Valley and Matuga.
