In line with that I would like to inquire with your office on the possible alternatives that your department can offer to GMOs."

"Is it possible for someone like me to know where the Department of Agriculture exactly stands on Genetically Modified Organisms? Because I’ve read news about the Supreme Court’s decision to stop field trials in the Philippines. Perhaps you could share about your stance on the issue of genetically modified organisms."
