Experts from the National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO) are calling on legislators in the 10th parliament to expedite the passing of the law to regulate Genetically Modified Organism to boost food production in Uganda.

 

NARO coordinator Barbara Mugwanya Zawedde says there is looming food insecurity which can be supported by the GMO mode of crops whose produce is timely.

 

Earlier this month, a section of Civil Society Organizations urged parliament to shelve the bill until amendments promoting safety on usage of Genetically Modified Organisms are made.
