Food inflation is a matter of concern indeed. With shortfall in production, we may be forced to resort to import of not only pulses but also food grains like rice. And we will have to meet the needs of the growing population. Strengthening the supply side by giving a boost to productivity and production is the need of the hour. GM crops look like the answer, provided they finally pass all the tests.
