GM vegetables in Ghana


19-9-2008  1-10-2008

As part of its IFPRI Discussion Papers series, the International Food Policy Research Institute has just published "Insecticide use on vegetables in Ghana: Would GM seed benefit farmers?" by D. Horna and co-authors. This analysis investigates the potential for adoption of GM vegetables by examining the determinants of insecticide use and estimating the extent to which insecticide use abates damage to the crop. See or contact for more information. IFPRI Discussion Papers contain preliminary material and research results and are circulated in order to stimulate discussion and critical comment.
