October 10, 2012

The governments of Mozambique and China are now on negotiation for the former to start growing genetically modified (GM) cotton. On November, a group of technicians from the Mozambique Cotton Institute (IAM) and the Mozambican Institute of Agricultural Research (IIAM) will travel to China to undergo training on growing the GM crop. This will be followed by the conduct of the first GM cotton trial in the country, initially in the district of Morrumbala, in Zambézia province.
