Government starts debate on Genetically Modified food crop
By Dr. Kulvinder Kaur

Government has initiated discussions on country’s first genetically modified (GM) food crop, mustard and has also proposed for its commercialization. The proposal of commercial launch of the mustard crop has faced a lot of political opposition but the Prime Minister is of the opinion that allowing GM crops is a unique step ahead to attain self sufficiency in edible oils. Approximately $10 billion is spent annually by the country on imports of vegetable oil. GM mustard which has the capacity to yield approximately 38% higher than normal varieties would reduce the imports of vegetable oil to a large extent.
The Prime Minister has shown his intentions to enhance the technological development farming and has thus decided to do away with all restrictions and bans on trials of GM food crops. Earlier also as the chief minister of Gujarat state, he had supported widespread adoption of GM cotton by farmers.

The Prime Minister suggested that India should not hesitate in adopting and using advanced technology in the field of agriculture after conforming its economic viability, safety and environment friendliness.         The GM crops have been strongly opposed due to the fear of using expensive seeds patented by multinational like Monsanto. However the scientists advocated that the mustard project would be funded by the government so that prices of the hybrid oil seeds would be quite reasonable. Because of GM cotton, which produces its own insecticide has helped India become a leading producer and exporter of fiber.
