GM crop important to develop Indian agriculture

 

PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI) has asked the Centre to encourage and publicize genetically modified (GM) foods so that the Indian agriculture and horticulture is enhanced and developed and make the country one of the largest exporters of agri products.

PHDCCI Vice-President Rajeev Talwar countered the opposition of GM food and explained that countries that adopted GM food technologies and their applications to improve the productivity and quality of their agri products have become net exporters of food products from food importing nations in the last couple of years, and India needs to look at this with proactive mindset.

The Chamber also appealed to the government to prepare a ground for 4th industrial revolution in India’s forthcoming industrial policy statement so that all and relevant emerging issues on the industrial front are addressed at the right time.
