GM canola ban lifted in Western Australia

The state government of Western Australia is to allow the commercial cultivation of genetically modified canola this year. The decision ends a seven-year moratorium on the crop. A partial lifting of the ban allowed trial crops to be planted on some 1,000 ha last year ( Agrow No 559, p 16). The states of Victoria and New South Wales allowed the cultivation of GM canola in 2008 ( Agrow No 540, p 9). Some 40,000 ha of Monsanto’s glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready canola were planted in those states last year. South Australia and Tasmania are the only states to maintain bans on GM canola.
