On my return trip to the U.S. from Malawi, I stopped off in Nairobi last Thursday, where I met one of Africaâ€™s leading thinkers on the use of bio-technology in Africa. I plan to publish on the topic in the coming months. Though no panacea, bio-tech offers some clear benefits to African farmers. With an urgent need to raise food production, especially in chronically food-insecure places such as Malawi, African farmers â€“ and their governments â€“ should explore every possible option for more productive use of land.
