LUBBOCK - More African countries are choosing to adopt genetically modified (GM) cotton, according to a new white paper published by a Textile Exchange Pan-Africa Sourcing Working Group.

Entitled 'Cotton in Africa: Sustainability at a Crossroads', it reveals that seven out of Africa's 54 countries currently allow GM cotton crops, while four do not permit them to be grown.

The white paper outlines the risks of scaling GM cotton in Africa and the opportunities of organic and GM-free preferred cotton standards such as Organic, Fairtrade, and Cotton made in Africa (CmiA).
