Australia approves Nuseed's GM canola tests

The Australian Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) has approved an application by Nufarm's seed subsidiary, Nuseed, to conduct field tests on genetically modified canola with altered oil content. The OGTR had previously concluded that the tests posed negligible risks to human health and the environment (Agrow No 672, p 26). Nuseed plans to test up to 200 GM canola lines with a high proportion of omega-3 fatty acids between March 2014 and March 2019.
