STUDY OF GMOs IN LOCAL AND IMPORTED CORN IN THE REPUBLIC OF KOSOVO

Session

Agriculture, Food Science and Technology

Description

Genetically modified organisms are foods produced by organisms that have undergone changes in their DNA using methods of genetic engineering and molecular biology. Genetically modified crops or cultivars are designed for resistance to pathogens and herbicides, to add better nutritional properties, gain more economically and lose less, etc. This study analyzed several samples from different producers (domestic and foreign), whose cultivars make up a large percentage of basic nutrition in RKS, especially in rural areas and

especially this raw material of vegetable origin, maize, constitutes the main feed on farms within RKS. Samples were taken on a conceptual basis conceptually from the maize product and the maize itself. This topic and this problem in Kosovo is relatively new so it is necessary to raise concerns in this study through scientific analysis and theories, explaining what GMOs are, why they are produced, their side effects (health, environment) ) and the differences to be made, separation from facts and myths, domestic vs. imported production, objective

judgment which primarily has an economy functioning for society rather than society functioning for economy and most importantly the rule of law and how the food law in the RKS addresses the subject at hand. In this study, four samples from two different producers that are present in the Kosovo market and which are used as main product for animals nutrition and human nutrition also, are analyzed, the method of analysis is Agrastrip® GMO - Romer labs®. Samples were taken on a random basis in the market and the focus of the study is one product, corn.
