Sandro Rissi, Monsanto Philippines chief executive officer, said in an interview with reporters on Wednesday that in a bid to boost market share in the Philippine market, the company is planning to introduce more products into the country, which involves varieties of genetically-enhanced hybrid corn seeds with Bacillus Thurengensis
Shiva has also written a letter to Ramesh highlighting that safety tests have not been carried out on modified Bacillus thurengensis
, the bacterium whose genes have been used to create the pestresistant brinjals.
Genetically modified Bt crops insert an engineered version of a natural soil bacterium, known as bacillus thurengensis
(Bt), into the crop.
