New Delhi, Mar 11: The Dhara Mustard Hybrid-11 (DMH-11) or Genetically Modified Mustard’s yield does not give better yields than currently available non-GM varieties and hybrids and during trials, it was compared with weaker and older hybrids, claimed the Coalition for GM-Free India and an ex-scientist from Bhabha Atomic Research centre on Thursday. The GM Mustard crop, developed by former Delhi Universitry vice-chancellor Deepak Pental, has been developed with National Dairy Development Board funding. Pental has refuted the allegations made on Thursday.
