First modified crop created in Bangladesh

A biotechnology company in Bangladesh has created the country’s first genetically modified crop, which is an eggplant designed to be resistant to certain pests.

Protesters who oppose the genetically modified breed say that introducing this foreign element into the soil in the country will alter the ecological system and forever harm the local crop.

Al Jazeera’s Maher Sattar has more from Gazipur.
