A researcher with the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR-SARI), Dr. Jerry Nboyine, has reignited the debate on embracing genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

To him, food security means producing enough quality food to meet market demand.

But, he insists, that without biotechnology in a rather growing global population, it would be difficult for countries including Ghana to feed themselves.

“Organic farming alone cannot feed us,” he told some journalists in Kumasi on Friday.

He spoke at Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology (OFAB) in Africa during a one-day workshop for editors in the Ashanti Region.

The goal is to bring clarity to GM technology activities in Ghana and the status of work done on GM products (PBR Cowpea) within CSIR in Ghana.
