Kenyan GMO Trials Delayed

In a turnabout decision, Kenya’s NEMA (National Environmental Management Authority) has ruled out immediate trials for GMOs, now requiring the Agriculture ministry to revisit policy. The agency had approved field trials to begin but now says that researchers need to wait for the ministry to approve it. If that happens, the Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service (Kephis) will begin trials that will likely take up to two years, after which seed multiplication and supply will happen.

The ban on GMOs in Kenya started in 2012, based on a study linking GMOs and cancer in lab rats. The report was later retracted.
