Recently, academics called on the Agriculture Department to destroy farms growing Hawaiian papaya in Kanchanaburi province. This protest is the result of a recent study, which found that these crops might be contaminated with genetically modified organisms (GMO). The study states that 29 samples of Hawaiian papaya tested in Kanchanaburi province were tainted. The academics urged that tests showed that papaya grown in 50-rai in Kanchanaburi province have GMO and the department should destroy these farms in order to prevent the contamination from spreading. Meanwhile, Greenpeace campaign coordinator for Southeast Asia Nattawika Ewsakul said so far the government had failed to control GMO contamination. If government does not take necessary action to control GMO contamination, then there will serious harm to eco system of our earth.
