According to the President of CBU, Emmanuel Okoro, “Technology has played a big role in developing the agricultural industry in developed countries and today with the right application of technology; it is possible to grow crops in a desert by use of agricultural biotechnology. With this technology, plants have been engineered to survive in drought conditions, and through genetic engineering, scientists have managed to introduce traits into existing genes with a goal of making crops resistant to droughts and pests, a condition that abounds in Nigeria.”
