Officials at the Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth (MPKV) in Rahuri today promised to hold a detailed dialogue with activists and groups opposed to genetically modified (GM) crops in the third week of November.

The development came after a delegation of activists and groups opposed to genetically modified (GM) crops met the varsity officials, demanding reasons as to why GM crop trials within MPKV premises should be allowed to continue in the face of violation of stipulated guidelines and near-absence of a monitoring mechanism.
