Misinformation on GM crops and improved seeds hurting Kenyan farmers and hungry citizens

Rose Rono has lived and farmed in Limuru, Kiambu County, in Central Kenya for the last ten years. 

In a good season, she says she harvests ten bags of corn weighing from her two-acre maize farm. Each bag weighs 90 kilograms.

But for the last three seasons, she has realized dismal harvests because of failed rains.

“This season is the worst. I will not harvest any corn as I’m planning to sell these stalks to livestock farmers so that I can at least get something from my farm,” says Mrs. Rono.

She is not alone.
