Passage of Plant Breeders Bill is Dangerous | CPP warns

The Convention People’s Party (CPP) on Tuesday said the passing into law of the Plant Breeders Bill in its current state would be dangerous and detrimental to the country’s socio-economic development.

Ms. Samia Yaba Nkrumah, CPP Chairman, said the bill if passed would create seed monopoly for multinational companies and might likely lead to farmers paying royalties for the seeds they plant.

She said the party’s research had revealed that countries with such laws had since reviewed them in order to safeguard the interest of their farmers.
