A new report says genetically-modified, or GM, crops would greatly improve agriculture in Africa. The policy group Chatham House released the report. It says African governments are unlikely to approve GM crops because opponents are spreading fear about its possible dangers. Rob Bailey is a writer of the report. He says opponents have created anti-GM campaigns based on misinformation. He says they claim a link between GM and cancer, reproductive problems or other health concerns. But Mr. Baily says there is no evidence to support the claims.
And he says GM crops offer the best hope of increasing productivity and dealing with climate change in Africa. Opponents of GM crops also argue that they are costly to grow. They say they do not produce more than non-GM crops. They say GM crops require more use of chemicals than traditional crops. And they say companies that support GM crops are more interested in making money than in helping poor farmers grow more crops. Tetteh Nartey grows pawpaw, maize and vegetables near the Ghanaian capital Accra. This year, Ghana approved a test of GM grains like cowpeas. Mr. Nartey disagrees with that decision. He argues that anything non-natural has risks. He also says there is not enough research into GM crops. Ghana’s government says it has put strong laws in place to guard against problems from GM crops. Bernard Guri works at Ghana’s Center for Indigenous Knowledge. He is worried that GM crops could force many of Africa’s millions of small farms to stop growing food.
