Australia OKs GM safflower tests

The Australian Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) concludes that planned field tests on genetically modified safflowers pose negligible risks to human health or the environment. The government research body, the CSIRO, applied to test the safflowers, which have elevated oleic acid levels. The tests would be conducted at 45 sites between January 2015 and August 2019 over a cumulative area of 850 ha. The OGTR's risk assessment and risk management plan is open to public comment until January 6th 2015.
