From the perspectives of agro biotechnology, the methods which enable the introduction of genetic material to be integrated into plant genome called Plant Genetic Modified Technology (PGMT). Since 1980s Malaysia enthusiastically worked on the development of Genetically Modified (GM) Crops. However, with certain barriers and hindrances, the successful development seems unattainable. This study was conducted to explore the six critical factors and issues which affect the successful commercialization of GM Crops in Malaysia using face to face and telephone interview which involved ten respondents from eight universities and research institutions in Malaysia.
