Abstract

Genetically Modified (GM) crops for cultivation actually has been applied in many countries including Indonesia. However, sometimes facing limited acceptance by consumers because of some reasons. Bali one of the Indonesian strategic islands with agricultural local wisdom also has controversial perceptions about the effects of Biotechnology and GMOs. The Bali Provincial Government issued Regional Regulation No. 8 of 2019 with an organic agricultural system, which prohibits the use of seeds derived from the genetically modified organism in accordance with the rules of SNI Organic Farming System 6729 of 2013. This study aims to assess the role of awareness to increase acceptance of Biotechnology and GMOs in Bali. This is surveyed due to the fact that Bali is the only province in Indonesia that issued the organic farming regulation. There were 100 respondents had surveyed. To test the proposed hypotheses, Structural Equation Modelling using Partial Least Square (SEM-PLS) is applied. The results of this study can be input for policymakers as well as stakeholders who are concerned about Biotechnology and GMO adoption. The results showed that despite the Bali provincial regulation, most respondents are still open to transgenic. The respondents need assistance in terms of transgenic adoption to support the organic system. Public Bali’s knowledge about the superiority of transgenic over nonorganic agricultural products and transgenic is organic will affect the trend in the future, especially to improve than conventional products and be ecofriendly and more sustainable. It is implicitly that we have to revisit the standard SNI Organic Farming System 6729 in 2013 to reconsider the exclusion of transgenic.
