The African Centre for Biosafety’s Latest Report on AGRAPosted: October 4, 2012
In its newest report on AGRA, the African Centre for Biosafety considers AGRA’s work with seeds, specifically as a means for profit-making and for commercialization of agriculture. The report aims to look deeper into AGRA’s philosophy, as well as to look into specific programs including Africa’s Seed Systems (PASS) and its Soil Health Programme (SHP) to better determine AGRA’s long term goals. The report notes that some of the goals include “hybrid seed, biotechnology (including genetic modification), synthetic fertilisers, irrigation, credit provision and general commercialisation of agricultural production,” and analyzes how these goals will be implemented and practiced.
