Australia approves 100th GMO release

The Australian Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) has approved Monsanto's request to conduct field trials on its genetically modified dicamba- and glufosinate-tolerant MON88701 cotton. The approval marks the 100th licence for intentional GMO release to be issued by the OGTR since the statutory system commenced in 2001. Over 20,000 applications and notifications have been processed by the Office since then, including over 500 licences for dealings not involving intentional release.
