Women farmers led by Maya Pusadekar are set to plant the unapproved herbicide tolerant Bt cotton at Pusada village in Amravati on Pusadekar’s land.
Move by the two farmers, who are from Ahmednagar and Akola districts, comes 3 days after a huge protest in Akola against ban on GM seeds in India.
The farmer, a member of the Shetkari Sanghatana, which backs GM crops, planted the modified cotton in Maharashtra's cotton-growing Akola district.
