Padmanaban, G (2005) GM rice and China. In: Current Science, 89 (3). pp. 426-427.
Here is another report1 for our activists to desperately try and disprove the claims! In a pre-production trial (a step before commercialization), two rice varieties, one GM Xianyou 63, with Bt gene to protect against rice stem borer and leaf roller, and another GMIIÃ¢Â€Â“Youming 86 with cowpea trypsin inhibitor gene to protect against rice stem borer, were tested by Chinese farmers in their fields. The Bt gene was generated by Chinese scientists. GM rice seeds were distributed at the same cost as non-GM rice.
