The Minister of Science and Technology Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu has launched the transgenic cotton seed aimed at boosting the textile industry.
Dr. Onu said the introduction of new cotton seeds will boost the economy by giving birth to more Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) in the production of cotton seedlings and its by-products.
