Abstract or Summary
Despite the national policy on safe and responsible use of modern biotechnology, several local government units in the Philippineshave passed resolutions and ordinances banning genetically modified (GM) crops in their respective areas. Across the globe, particularly in Europe, there are still many skeptics who refuse to recognize the potential benefits of GMO technology to raise farmers’ income and yields, improve adaptation to climate change, and increase the crop’s nutrient content.
