|Open Letter to AGRI SA: Response to its unsubstantiated claims about the benefits of GM maize in SA|
|Tuesday, 09 October 2012 15:11|
Snippet from the letter below.
The ACB read with interest an article published in the Business Day (2nd October, 'AgriSA backs gene-modified maize'), in which you argue that the curtailment of cultivating GM maize in South Africa would lead to lower yields, higher maize prices, and an increase in the use of agricultural pesticides. You then further go on to claim that GM crops are less susceptible to pests and drought. We find these claims to be spurious, unsubstantiated and completely detached from the day to day realities of our agricultural system.
