Farmers sign support for biotechnology

  • by

Farmer-leaders from Mindanao have signified their support for the application of modern biotechnology tools in agriculture, even as they keenly await the commercial release of Pinoy biotech crops.

Twenty-eight farmer-leaders from six regions in Mindanao, including the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, added their signatures to more than 200 other previous signatories in the Declaration of Support for the Application of Biotechnology in Agriculture.

The event coincided with a recent seminar on biotechnology on Camiguin Island in Northern Mindanao that was organized by the Asian Farmers Regional Network (Asfarnet) Philippines with the Biotech Program Office of the Department of Agriculture.
